Following a joint working process lasting several months, the four scholarship recipients Marwen Abouda, Desiré Davids, Dorine Mokha and Hector Thami Manekehla presented their performance “No There Yes Maybe Here”. The show explored the (national) boundaries and possibilities of mobility. What does this mean for their work as freelance artists? Who has the power to allow or deny access? With their performance, the group scrutinised the complex construct of economics and politics, negotiation and regulation, verification and confirmation. “No There Yes Maybe Here” was produced in cooperation with the Schauspiel Stuttgart.
During the application and selection process, the academy was advised by a panel comprised of the following experts: Andrea Ouamba (SN), Boysie Zekwana (ZA), Hafiz Dhaou (TN), Rokia Traoré (ML), Studio Kabako (CD), Christophe Wavelet (BE) and Virginie Dupray (CD/FR).
The jury selected the following fellows among 18 nominees: Marwen Abouda, Tunisia; Désiré Davids, South Africa; Dorine Mokha, Democratic Republic of the Congo; Hector Thami Manekehla, South Africa
