PASS in Paris: Kongo Astronauts

Invented in 2013, Kinshasa-based crew, Kongo Astronauts imaginatively step through visual concepts, sounds, texts, space and time. Their urban or rural landings explore the sparcity of terrains along with postcolonial realities and dilemmas.

Whether at Zongo Falls, the streets of Kin la Belle, or in music videos by Konono No.1 or Baloji, Kongo Astronauts as SPARCK say: “cannot be pinned down as art, [they] cannot be policed by an art world intimately linked to the structures of power that govern us.”

For our PASS POP-UP at Fondation Cartier, Paris, Kongo Astronauts will appear with Méga Mingiedi.
