MOSES SERUBIRI

We are happy to announce this year’s City Writer in Bayreuth: Moses Serubiri. In May and June, Moses Serubiri will write about Bayreuth, about life in Bayreuth – and bring new perspectives, new stories, unheard fictions, necessary comments. We are looking forward!

Moses Serubiri is an independent art writer, researcher, and curator. His interests lie in coloniality, language, and politics of urban space. He is published in magazines such as Chimurenga (South Africa), Kulturaustausch (Germany), and C& – Contemporary And (Germany). He holds a Higher Diploma in Software Engineering (2013), and graduated from the 5th CCA Lagos International Art School in Dakar, Senegal. His research and curatorial projects include ‘Life mu City’ (2014), a research project on urban language, currently in it’s 3rd volume, at the Goethe Zentrum Kampala; the biennial contemporary art festival, KLA ART – UNMAPPED (2014) looking at sociological studies on urban mapping and social classification in Ugandan cities; as a research intern for C& – Contemporary And, he explored African contemporary art on the international art scene. He is the second international city writer in Bayreuth, after Dr Tom Odhiambo’s stay in 2014. More
