MA from Le Fresnoy : Studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing, France; BA Anthropology / Comparative Religions from McGill University, Montréal, Canada.

In her recent work Kapwani Kiwanga revisits her earlier training in social sciences and elaborates research projects in which she occupies the role of a researcher. Her methodology includes fashioning systems and establishing protocols as in scientific experimentation to delineate lenses through which one can observe culture and its characteristic propensity toward mutation.

Her projects materialise as installations, video, sound and performance. Afrofuturism, anti-colonial struggle and its memory, belief systems, vernacular and popular culture are but some of the research areas which inspire her practice.
