Panelist: Yasmine Van Pee

Yasmine Van Pee is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of California, Berkeley, where she studies modern and contemporary art, with a particular interest in colonial and post-colonial Africa. Somewhat to her own surprise, her native Belgium has come to dominate her work these past years. Her dissertation is tentatively titled “Phantom Africa: Imagining Territory in Belgium and Congo, 1885-1975” and focuses on the work of Herzekiah Andrew Shanu, Gaston-Denys Périer, and Marcel Broodthaers. In her free time she enjoys tinkering with translations and vintage motorcycles.

Ms. Van Pee will present “Mining Katanga: Sammy Baloji’s “Mémoires” during Panel #3.
