Writing Art History Since 2002

First Title

With vibrant colours and an extraordinary visual language, the artist Aïda Muluneh focuses on the unequal distribution of existential resources such as water, food and education, the abuse of power and human rights and the empowerment of women.

Muluneh was born in Addis Ababa/Ethiopia in 1974, grew up in Yemen, England and Canada and studied communication with a focus on film in the USA. For her photographic compositions, she interweaves different cultural traditions and perspectives and uses methods from film and stage. Muluneh’s works have been awarded internationally and are represented in numerous museum collections. In 2020 her series Road of Glory was exhibited at the Nobel Peace Prize. Muluneh is founder and director of Addis Foto Fest, East Africa’s first international photography festival, and more recently Africa Foto Fair, Ivory Coast.

Aïda Muluneh: ‘On the Edge of Past Future’ presents large-format works from diverse series. The exhibition, curated by Celina Lunsford and Andrea Horvay, is Muluneh’s first solo show in Germany.

The exhibition will be on view from the 1st of February until the 14th of April, 2024. For more information, please visit Fotografie Forum Frankfurt.
