Artist Talk: Lebohang Kganye

Hear artist Lebohang Kganye in conversation with curator Catherine Wood

In the first in our series of talks with this year’s shortlisted artists and photographers for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize, Lebohang Kganye takes us through her practice and her nominated exhibition Haufi nyana? I’ve come to take you home (2023), which first showed at Foam in Amsterdam.

Kganye brings us beyond the image, to other areas of making that encompass installation and liveness, locating us within a unique sense of place and collective identity. Together with curator Catherine Wood, we will look at the wider histories of South Africa and the legacies surrounding apartheid and colonialism that inform Kganye’s research and work.
