DJ Mix of Kleopatra Divine

The 27/01/2022 from 19:00 at 21:00

At the heart of the exhibition ‘‘Ubuntu, a lucid dream’’, the Library of Things We Forgot to Remember welcomes Kleopatra Divine on Thursday, January 27th, from 7 to 9 pm, to spin the exposed vinyls with her personal tracklist.

Of Rwandan descent, Kleopatra Divine is a digger, who has had a passion for music since she learned to mix alone in her room with her headphones. Nowadays, she shares her discoveries, gleaned throughout her wanderings from Kigali to Paris, crossing through Normandy, with an ever more faithful public. Close to the Montreal-based Moonshine collective, her sets evolve between Dancehall, UK drill, D for Drama and French Rap, and are particularly dedicated to women producers, artists, singers and rappers, who are still insufficiently represented in the clubbing scene.

The Library of Things We Forgot to Remember

The Library of Things We Forgot to Remember, presented for the first time in France, is a project by artist Kudzanai Chiurai. The extensive collection of archives, mostly sound, on view in this library constitutes the soundtrack of the struggles for civil rights and liberation movements in the global south. This space of hospitality, considered a liberated zone, regularly hosts DJ-sets and a series of sessions that intersect speech, poetry, performance and music, focusing on practices and imaginaries in resistance.
