I met Marie one afternoon in the first floor of La Bourse building in Namur (Belgium), right before she guided us through the exhibition tour of Kikk in Town which, this year paid special attention to Africa. La Bourse was the fortress of Kikk’s organisation team. Everyone was working, bustling around, setting everything up for the opening of the festival on the next day. There I found her, in-between the stress and the excitement. She shook everything away and offered me to have a sit to start the interview. And while having a coffee, our conversation travelled from digital art to the lack of visibility of African artists while stopping by women’s empowerment and rights.
