A Srecko Horvat Interview on the radicality of love in which he cites Samson Kambalu and his preoccupation with the Chewa philosophy of the gift, Nyau:
Samson Kambalu- Q&A Whitechapel Gallery, London: In Samson Kambalu’s magazine spread-inspired installation Introduction to Nyau Cinema, his ‘Nyau’ short silent movies are combined with written reflections on visual culture, post-colonialism and cinema. Here the artist discusses with Sofia Victorino (Daskalopoulos Head of Education & Public Programmes) how he began making films, the role of the projectionist, and how the concept of ‘wasting time’ informs his work.
Samson Kambalu will deliver the Stolzenberg-Doan Annual Lecture at Nova Southern Eastern University, Florida USA – speaking on ‘Nyau’ and the economy of the gift.
