Nora Chipaumire was born in Mutare, Zimbabwe, and lives in New York. From the very beginning of her artistic work in 1998 she has both challenged and embraced stereotypes of Africa and the black body, art and aesthetics. Her recent trilogy, ““#PUNK 100% POP *NIGGA” is a live performance album that premiered in October 2018 at the Kitchen, New York. Since 2012 Chipaumire has been working on the long-term project “Nhaka”, a technology, practice and working process towards an artistic work. In this context she published a digital book on her website early this year, proceeding from her research with the Anna Morris’s tumbuka dance company and Shona masters in Harare. Chipaumire was a Guggenheim Foundation fellow in 2018.
