#Harambee63 opened on Thursday 5th September 2013 at Kuona Trust, Nairobi – Kenya. The installation runs until the 20th of September 2013.

The bar, Kwa Njeri Bar and Butchery is the central location for the gumboots which represent 63 faces of Pan Africanism before 1963. A video installation screened behind the grills of the bar counter ties the philosophies behind Pan Africanism, violence in revolution and movements  like Negritude to the origin of decolonized Africa.
