Lindiwe Mngxitama - Bubblegum Club

Lindiwe Mngxitama

Lindiwe Mngxitama currently lives and works in Johannesburg, her first Love. She is an African Literature alumni from the University of the Witwatersrand and Editor of Bubblegum Club. As a storyteller, reader, curator, artist and academic-in-cry-sis, Lindi thinks of the worlds she creates through language, as radical spaces of (re)imagination and critical questioning. Word woven worlds that engage with H/historical and socio-political legacies that construct and govern society and shape subjectivities. Her work and writing seeks to bring to the centre the narratives of those bodies and their interior worlds, radioactive and overflowing with H/history — often relegated to the periphery — to ask who and what moves at the margins, why and how? Her work and praxis endeavours to bring about a conversation with (re)memory and is rooted in Affect, Play, Phenomenology, Critical Race theory, Post-Colonial theory, Queer theory and Black Feminist Thought.
