School of Darkness

Sepake Angiama is invited by CIFAS and Kunstenfestivaldesarts and will lead a futuristic writing workshop.

Over four days, Sepake Angiama proposes to slip in and out of other dimensions and to gather knowledge from our future selves in order to speak to the present. Starting from her previous project Letters From the Future, this new phase School of Darkness offers a space to inhabit future temporalities and look back at the present with specific tools to construct a collective inhabitable imaginary.

This space of the workshop will also transform itself itself in a temporary library including a selection of books made by Sepake Angiama and Kunstenfestivaldesarts.


Sepake Angiama

Sepake Angiama is a curator and educator interested in discursive practices, the social framework, and how we shape and form our experiences in understanding the world. She is inspired by working with artists who disrupt or provoke the social sphere through action, design, dance, and architecture. She is the initiator of Under the Mango Tree: Sites of Learning in cooperation with ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen), Stuttgart.

Through notions of unlearning and indigenous knowledge, artist-led project spaces, libraries, and schools interested in unfolding discourses gather to discuss and build radical education practices that destabilize the European canon.

Previously, Angiama was Head of Education for documenta 14, Kassel, 2017; Director of Education for Manifesta 10, Saint Petersburg, 2014; and Curator of Public Programmes at Turner Contemporary, Margate. She has created education programs for several institutions, including Tate Modern, London, and Hayward Gallery, London. Angiama lives and works in transition.


CIFAS asks contemporary artists to illustrate its communication. Carmen José illustrated the workshop led by Sepake Angiama.

Carmen José is a visual artist and educator with a MA at the Kunsthochschule Kassel (Germany) in Visual Communication with focus on Illustration and Editorial Design. In 2014 she initiate together with Kathi Seemann the project Papiercafé, a multifunctional collective space for Self-publishing & Café. She joined the independent publishing house Rotopol as co-publisher and author in 2016. A year later in 2017, she worked as part of the Aneducation team of documenta14 in Kassel and Athens (Greece). In October 2018 she moved to Rotterdam (Netherlands) for an artist residency at B.A.D Foundation and an experimental research on critical thinking in visual education at the Master Education in Arts at Piet Zwart Institute.
