Peterson Kamwathi Waweru, born 1980 in Nairobi, has occupied himself for a long time with symbols and their meaning. In the exhibition he shows current drawings, woodcarving and graffiti, negotiating the historical, social and psychological mechanisms of conditioning and manipulation not only in his own society.
There is also a new publication – a cooperation with the Goethe-Institut and Verlag fuer Moderne Kunst Nürnberg, edited by J. Hossfeld and U. Vierke.
Exhibition from 27.11.11 to 04.03.12
Iwalewa-Haus, University of Bayreuth, Germany
