Experimental Book Making with the Artist Adama Delphine Fawundu

In this workshop, visual artist and photographer Adama Delphine Fawundu together with the Young Gropius Bau will explore experimental forms of bookmaking. Participants will work with the artist to create individual books that relate to their lived experiences and familiar environments.

In this workshop, the participants will focus on their family stories and related personal experiences. They will serve as the basis for the individual book making. Participants are asked to bring photocopies of personal pictures, images or belongings (heirlooms, jewelry, books). All participants will leave the workshop with a unique book. Participants will be provided with bookmaking tools; however, you are welcome to bring your own threading or decorative materials if you like.

Please note that you will cut and collage the copies. Please do not bring originals.

Adama Delphine Fawundu is a photographer and visual artist of Mende, Krim, Bamileke and Bubi descent. Her visual language centres around themes of indigenisation and ancestral memory. Fawundu co-published the critically-acclaimed book MFON: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally. Her awards include the Anonymous Was A Woman Award, New York Foundation for The Arts Photography Fellowship and the Rema Hort Mann Artist Grant, among others, and she is a 2022 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition finalist.
