Together we explore our troubling modern identities, re-imagine our pasts and remix our futures. We create work together using film, visual arts, music and fashion - dissecting and subverting the layers of how Africans are seen and unseen, what Africans can and cannot do, where Africans can and cannot go, and what Africans can and cannot say.

We are a Kenyan art collective:

A city buzzing with energy and potential, a city of purgatorial traffic jams, color, dust and the Pursuit of Money. We try to create work that dissects our city and its relationships with modernity, its past and the edges between its social layers and its citizens.

We live and work in Nairobi:

In all our works, we prioritize the acknowledgement and stating of our different individual perspectives and privileges. We don't always agree with one another, and our work strives to convey this dialogue. This is sometimes difficult to grasp in a world that prizes individual authorship. Our work is often placed within structures that regard the solitary ‘Director’ or ‘Author’ as central to the definition and construction of the work.

We speak as one, we speak as many:

We've been very lucky, and we've won some cool awards:
