Join us for a day with Wakaliga, aka Wakaliwood, the notorious collective and film production studio based in Kampala’s Wakaliga neighbourhood. Best known for its ultra-low budget, special-effect Bruce-Lee homage action movies, such as “Who Killed Captain Alex?” or “Bad Black and Tebaatusasula”, Wakaliwood’s community-led practice of film exhibition is geared towards a local viewing culture. Introducing the video joker, a physical narrator whose sharp commentary enhances screen activity, the film screening turns into a performance, a participatory interaction between the screen and its audiences. Wakaliwood are participating artists at this year’s documenta 15 in Kassel.
At SAVVY Contemporary and in the backyard of Panke Club, Issac Godfrey Geoffrey Nabwana and Harriet Nakasujja of the Wakaliga team are invited to convene an afternoon session of “kibanding” to play and pause on questions of performative film screening practices, including a public screening of selective works followed by an open exchange with all present. By introducing dynamics found in a kibanda, a video hall with a VJ narrating while a film is played, we will be exploring the sub_version of imaginaries and spelling of worlds.
The workshop takes place in the frameworks of SAVVY Contemporary’s research and exhibition project Magical Hackerism – probing cultures, realities and worlds through the remix and reappropriation of technologies from a Tropikós perspective (tropics as region and mindset) and United Screens, SAVVY’s long term research and networking project on alternative ecosystems for South-South cinema and video art circulation.
COLLABORATION & SUPPORT Magical Hackerism is a SAVVY Contemporary project in collaboration with panke.gallery, funded by the Senate Department of Culture and Europe.

“Boundaries Congress” is an open network event that aims to promote a diverse cultural offering in Berlin.
In this context, a congress means that different groups and individuals meet to exchange ideas on topics of art, diversity and political networking. Boundaries” of cultural creation are to be pointed out and critically reconsidered in order to develop new forms of cultural coexistence and thus to give all cultures in the neighbourhood their place.
We have a mixture of Berlin and non-Berlin artists who are looking forward to getting in touch with you. We want to offer you to discuss with the artists how a diverse cultural landscape can be shaped in the future or what cultural creation means for life in general. For this purpose, we will offer a hip hop/glitch & bass music program from the afternoon until the next morning. There will be a mix of live music performances, Dj performances and live graffiti painting. Through our mixture of international and local artists, we want to promote intercultural understanding and therefore we are also looking forward to your speeches at our open microphone to give certain topics that move you public and to encourage other people to reflect on them. We are looking forward to stimulating discussions with you!
The microphone will be open
from 15:00 o’clock to 01:00 o’clock
We will keep 10-minute time slots free between the performances. Feel free to contact us in advance or spontaneously at the event!
A raffle for a free live graffiti slot will also take place. So if you want to join us in the afternoon in the courtyard of the Panke e.V. then write us a mail with your name and artist page or drawing example. We will draw the winner one week before the event.
Here you can write us an email with your name for the open microphone or the graffiti raffle:
Furthermore we will openly display a guest book on the day of the event, in which you can also express your thoughts or drawings about yourself, your life situation and your cultural ideas. This book will be published on social media after the event to initiate a long-term discussion about culture in Berlin.
As a little treat, there will also be a free screen printing station in the afternoon. We have three motifs in the works which you can print on your own t-shirts or other fabric materials. The motifs will also be presented shortly before the event.
We follow an approach where we want to give all people access to our event. Therefore, you are welcome to write to us about all accessibility issues via email or social media channels, in order to find individual solutions for each guest with impairments in case of a visit to our event. On the day of the event, we will also be available for any needs you may have. Just contact us at the reception of our event or by email in advance:
