Chandra Frank is a writer and curator living in Amsterdam. Her work is mainly focused on the Black, Migrant and Refugee women’s movement in the Netherlands during the 1980s.
Frank explores the role of archives, black and brown feminist genealogy and the politics of pleasure and resistance in her practice. Most recently, Frank curated a two-year project, developed in collaboration with the Amsterdam based gallery Framer Framed, titled Re(as)sisting Narratives, which explores the relationship between South Africa and the Netherlands. Themes such as memory, trauma, the body and resistance are central to the exhibition.
Chandra Frank will be in discussion with guests on PASS in Amsterdam on Monday 12 December from 14:00 – 15:00.
