Lindiwe Mngxitama

Lindiwe Mngxitama currently lives and works in Johannesburg—her first love—and holds a BA Honours with distinction in African Literature from the University of the Witwatersrand. As a writer and artist, they conceive of the worlds they create through language as radical spaces of re-imagination and critical questioning. Word woven worlds, that engage with historical and socio-political systems and institutions that construct and govern society and subjectivities. Her work and writing seeks to bring to the centre, the narratives of those bodies radioactive and overflowing with history/History often relegated to the periphery; to ask what and who moves at the margins, why and how? Her work and praxis endeavours to bring about a conversation with memory/rememory and is rooted in Critical Race theory, Post-Colonial theory, Queer theory, Affect and Black Feminist Thought.
