Short Bio

As a philosopher, (sound-)writer and lecturer, Arlette-Louise Ndakoze researches complex sciences as initiated by African civilizations - especially philosophy and its forms of mediation. 

In her sonic-textual works, she focuses on the connection between spiritual-immaterial and physical-material spheres, those spaces of possibility in the making. With special attention, A.-L. Ndakoze deals with the link that holds cultures together until today. 

As artistic co-director of the Berlin discourse and art space SAVVY Contemporary, she directs - in addition to a variety of long-term projects - the radio SAVVYZΛΛR, an implementation of SAVVY Contemporary on air, which she co-initiated in 2020. In this soundscape of possibilities, forms of pain move to the channels of their liberation.
