Martha Kazungu

Martha Kazungu is the Assistant Curator at the Museum am Rothenbaum in Hamburg (MARKK). She is an alumna of Àsìkò school, a programme founded and directed by Bisi Silva. She received her BA at Margaret Trowell School of Industrial and Fine art at Makerere University. She is currently completing her master’s degree in African Verbal and Visual Art with a focus on media and curating in Africa at the University of Bayreuth in Germany. She has contributed articles for Contemporary And magazine, Start Art Journal and Art Africa Magazine as well as on her personal blog. Before enrolling for her MA, Kazungu not only worked with Makerere Art Gallery, 32 Degrees East the Ugandan arts Trust, Goethe Zentrum Kampala but also assisted in many exhibitions in Kampala, most notably the Kampala Art Biennale 2016 where she served as curatorial assistant. She is currently working on two projects; one concerns researching graphic art from Uganda and the other is titled Tuwaye (let’s converse) and works towards creating safe spaces for female artists to interact through dialogue and exhibitions. Throughout her work, she is interested in activating figurative language into contemporary discussions which might be manifested either as exhibitions or text or both.
