Nëpp Nëppël is a multimedia collaborative project using the artistic process to explore gender justice and advocacy in sensitive contexts.
Nëpp Nëppël is a multimedia immersive installation and documentary project centering the experiences of marginalised people in West Africa. The project uses the artistic process, mainly painting and photography workshops, to explore gender justice and advocacy in sensitive contexts. With a focus on disrupting traditional modes of documentary making, Nëpp Nëppël relies on participants’ fully informed consent to shape the documentary content and their portrayal therein.
The prototyping process for this project centers the development of an ethical framework of engagement, to be shared with local communities and experimental documentary technologists.
