The exhibition ART TRANSPOSITION: Kampala - Nairobi - Hamburg presents work by three artists from Uganda - Denis Mubiru, Waswad and Xenson, and two artists from Kenya - Boniface Maina and Shabu Mwangi. The exhibition will be curated by Robinah Nansubuga from Uganda. Being representatives of the young generation of East African artists they all take part on an intensive artistic exchange between Kampala and Nairobi. Curatorial projects in Kampala and Nairobi brought the emerging artists together revealing the common features of their oeuvres. In their artworks, the artists explore the ideas of selfhood, identity, cultural memory and personality. Moving on the border between abstract and figurative they receive their inspiration in the cultural heritage of their motherland.
