At MoMA, Bodys Isek Kingelez Finally Gets the Retrospective He Deserves - Artsy
"Due to Kingelez’s “lack of known art historical precedents,” Suzuki writes in the catalogue, “[the work] evades the genealogy that we love to document and trace.” While there are no artists known to have made anything quite like Kingelez did, however, there is also no shortage of associations with the visual culture of Kinshasa, the capital of what is now the DRC. “I draw my ideas from Africa,” Kingelez once said. And as indicated in catalogue texts by Suzuki, British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye, and Chika Okeke-Agulu, a Nigerian artist and art historian at Princeton University, Kingelez must be understood in the postcolonial context of the history and culture of Kinshasa."


“Without a model, you are nowhere. A nation that can’t make models is a nation that doesn’t understand things, a nation that doesn’t live." –Bodys Isek Kingelez]

Congolese government asked to delay implementing online media decree
A new law in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that would require news websites to register with the government is drawing criticism from journalism organizations in the country, who want to see the law amended before coming into force.

RSF is joining Journalist in Danger (JED) and others in calling for the law to be changed: "At the end of a meeting organized by JED on 21 June, the journalists’ groups expressed deep concern about the decree issued by the communication and media ministry on 14 June, announcing that new news websites would have to register with authorities before starting to operate, and existing news websites would have to register within 30 days. 'If implemented as it stands, in letter and spirit, this decree would have the effect of stifling online media and further reducing the space for freedom of expression in the run-up to major political events signalled by the announcement of elections,' JED secretary-general Tshivis Tshivuadi said."
