Yvette Mutumba

Moderator Listening Sessions

Yvette Mutumba is co-founder and editor-in-chief of the art magazine Contemporary And (C&).

From 2012 to 2016 she worked as a curator at Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt am Main, DE, where she co-curated the major exhibitions FOREIGN EXCHANGE (or the stories you wouldn’t tell a stranger) (2014–15), El Hadji Sy: Paintings, Performance, Politics (2015), and A Labour of Love (2015–16, with Gabi Ngcobo). In 2016 she co-curated Focus: African Perspectives at The Armory Show, New York, US. In 2018 she was part of the curatorial team of the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art.

Mutumba studied Art History at Freie Universität Berlin, DE, and holds a PhD from Birkbeck, University of London, GB. As an author and editor, she has published numerous texts and books on contemporary art from African perspectives as well as Global Art History. Her most recent publication I am built inside you, edited by IfA (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) and C&, was published in April 2017 by Sternberg Press.

In 2020 the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam attracted Yvette Mutumba as ‘curator-at-large’, a new position created to provide the museum with a diversity of ideas, with the aim of adding other perspectives to the program, collection, research and public program.

Yvette Mutumba

is a place to discover Amsterdam’s dynamic and forward-thinking art scene.

#5 Dia di Lucha pa Libertat

Every year on the 1st of July we commemorate slavery and celebrate the abolition of slavery: Keti Koti. Since we believe that Keti Koti should be a national holiday, we are closed on the 1st of July. We asked Lydiënne Albertoe to design a graphic work for this particular occasion. The work is placed on the door of our Central Space and the windows of the Studio Space.
