Sammy Baloji is an artist and co-founder of Picha & the Lubumbashi Biennial in Lubumbashi in D.R.Congo. Ethnography, architecture and urbanism stand out as the key thematic focuses of his current artistic practice, which brings together photography, video, and archival documents relating to colonial history. His reading of the Congolese past is a way of analyzing African identity today, through the prism of the different political systems that our society has experienced.
