Black Aesthetics and Being in the World: An Interview with Nana Adusei-Poku

Every year, the Director of Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art – a Rotterdam-based institution established in 1990 with an emphasis on partnerships as an operating principle – invites a Curatorial Fellow into the space for an extended period of research. Witte de With’s 2015 Curatorial Fellow is Nana Adusei-Poku, a Research Professor in Cultural Diversity at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and Lecturer in Media Arts at the University of the Arts, Zurich. Adusei-Poku earned her doctoral degree from Humboldt University where she engaged the curatorial term “post-black” coined by Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem, and conceptual artist Glenn Ligon. The outcome of her study was the thesis entitled ”Rooted in but not limited by” – Re-iterations of Post-Black Art.
