Vitjitua Ndjiharine is a multidisciplinary visual artist who works across various media to develop strategies of deconstructing and re-contextualizing the pedagogical function of texts and images found within colonial archives. Her interdisciplinary approach utilizes drawing, painting, collage, and site installation as tools that enable a critical engagement with problematic historical content. Vitjitua is a recipient of the Gerda Henkel Foundation research scholarship, allowing her to work in collaboration with the research center »Hamburg’s (Post-)Colonial Legacy«, with exhibitions at MARKK museum and at gallery M.Bassy in Hamburg.

Vitjitua Ndjiharine is a fellow in cooperation with Literaturhaus Stuttgart in conjunction with the Membrane festival.
