Kenyan Artist Wangechi Mutu Commemorates 20th Rwandan Genocide Through Art


This year marks the 20th commemoration of the Rwandan Genocide against the Tutsi which saw one million people killed in 100 days. This happened between 7th April - Mid July 1994.

Kenyan artist, Wangechi Mutu used her artistic skills in acknowledgement of the 20th commemoration of a humanitarian crisis fueled by tribalism that divided Rwandans in 1994.

Every year, Rwanda remembers the victims through a ceremony know as Kwibuka. 
Kwibuka is a Kinyarwanda word for remember and describes activities marking the 20th commemoration of the Genocide against the Tutsi.

Post Genocide era, if you run into a Rwandan national they will tell you, "I'm a Munyarwanda". They eliminate the element of tribal classification given their country's history.

A moment of silence for all the victims of the Rwandan Genocide.
