Pascale Obolo is a filmmaker, an independent curator and the chief editor of the art journal Afrikadaa.

Born in Yaoundé, Cameroun, she studied film making at the conservatoire libre du cinéma Français and  gratudated in a movie master specialized in experimental movies at Paris VIII university. A feminist movie maker, she addressed the space of women in artistic fields. Her movies were programmed and awarded in many festivals. Her deeply activist work interrogates memories, identity, exile, invisibility. Pascale Obolo has a passion for visual arts that brings her to direct and produce ‘filmic objects’, as she refuses to be categorized in a cinematographic genre. Her movie Calypso Rose: The lioness of the jungle has won the silver Yennega prize at the Fespaco festival in the documentary field in March 2013. Her recent works question the archive, through the construction of historical narratives with a post-colonial perspective, visual and cultural representations of political and economic history, using photography, video and performance.

Pascale Obolo co-founded the contemporary African arts journal Afrikadaa. She also directs the African Art Book Fair (AABF), an independent fair which highlights editorial practices and supports qualitative and original publications. Curator of la colonie, tutor at the «ateliers des horizons» in the art center les Magasins in Grenoble, Pascale Obolo just joined the team of the scientific board of the fine-arts school of the Reunion Island.

Break The Canon Make The Canon, Sint Lucas Antwerpen

Did you ever wonder why are our books and references are so white, male and cis-heteronormative? We Cannot Work Like This is currently working hard on a library that will break and make the canon of art & design education in our school. We order new books that view the library through a self-reflexive, intersectional feminist, non-cisheteronormative and anti-racist lens. Have a look at our new books and discover what is out there!
