Rita Ouédraogo lives and works in Amsterdam. As a curator, writer, Research and Community programmer, her work is informed by her interest in African diaspora, decolonizing institutions, institutional racism, popular culture and social issues. Ouédraogo has worked on several community based projects based around museum collections and is informed by her ongoing research into questions of Samenwerking en Solidariteit (Collaboration and Solidarity), that explores modes of collaborative practices across power differentials, especially within a decolonial framework.
