Tinga Tinga Cinema & Bar is a temporary platform for ethnographic and socially relevant films dealing with historical events in Africa as well as current realties for Africans in Europe. The title makes reference to the television series Tinga Tinga Tales and the tourist-oriented Tingatinga paintings from East Africa. It is intended as a provocation to question clichés and the complexities in representing Africa. The screenings are presented by E 3600 scientific artworks, a non-profit association with the goal to blur the lines that separate art from science. For the three consecutive evenings of ECAS it opens up a social space to engage with filmmaking produced in the context of cultural studies and social sciences as well as artistic productions. E 3600 presents films from the GIEFF (German International Ethnographic Film Festival) archive as well as other audio-visual scholarly perspectives on the African continent, related to issues addressed in this year’s ECAS. Every evening features a special guest and an opportunity for discussion and debate.
