MADEYOULOOK is a Johannesburg-based interdisciplinary artist collaborative between Molemo Moiloa and Nare Mokgotho. Their works take as their point of departure everyday Black creative practices that have either been historically overlooked or deemed inconsequential.

In this workshop, MADEYOULOOK will talk about the relational model that lies at the political core of their practice as well as some of the working concepts they have developed over their 15-year collaboration, such as ‘communities of practice’, ‘politics versus aesthetics’ and ‘somatic urgencies.’

Informed by their work and their relationships to land and nature, this interactive workshop encompasses a somatic listening process, mapping exercises and collective social action. It encourages participants to consider their individual practices through the lens of ‘radical socialities’—a reference to the term evolved by Margarita Palacios to describe relations to otherness. No specific expertise or level of experience is required.
