GSA Summer This year has seen spatial spillages of the world into our homes - the home holding as a loose epicentre for drawn in spatial imaginaries. Mothers bring in fruit during our Zoom calls, hadedas croon in over the microphone. This, while we pursue Namibia, Dar Es Salaam, the City of Tshwane, Cairo, and inner-city Johannesburg through our laptop screens, our Instagram reel, while sitting at the dinner table, on our beds or at our home work-desk. Domestic life spills over into conversations concerning political frameworks, gender equality, identity, edge conditions, economies and all sorts of global processes at play, in space.
GSA Summer Show retreats into intimate views: Celebrating the immense resilience and ingenuity of our students, and the care of our staff, we invite you to share, from your own bedrooms, lounges or kitchens, in this year’s show, promising to be a digital collective experience like no other!
