Leilah Babirye is included in 'mixed up with others before we even begin'
'mixed up with others before we even begin' celebrates the historical and cultural processes of creolisation as an age-old mode of world-making. The group exhibition features works that examine postcolonial histories of diversity, satirical transliteration, queer folklore, and collective feminist rituals.
The exhibition investigates models of thinking and working that reconcile different, sometimes contradictory entities within today's visual culture. Contemporary works enter into a dialogue with selected pieces from the mumok collection, and objects from the collections of the Natural History Museum Vienna.
Leilah Babirye's large-scale sculpture and series of works on paper are featured alongside pieces by Mariana Castillo Deball, Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčová, Nilbar Güreş, Nicolás Lamas, and Slavs and Tatars.
