Muafangejo, the solitary, exotic figure who stood his ground, self-assured in his art and guided by his belief that all human beings are equal before God.

John Ndevasia Muafangejo (1943 – 1987), Namibia’s most acclaimed artist, gained recognition through the Anglican Church, and later the Arts Association of Namibia (AAN), supporting the artist-activist in hosting exhibitions of his works, including him in international biennales and art competitions, unheard of during the Apartheid era.

In 1988 shortly after his death the John Muafangejo Art Centre (JMAC) was established, through key agents such as the AAN, to engage artists and activists to stand up for the liberation of the Namibian people.

JMAC, in partnership with the Namibian Arts Association, Muafangejo Season 2018 opens with an exhibition containing the heritage collection of over 100 works of the late “artivist” currently stored at the National Art Gallery of Namibia.

Muafangejo Season is a yearly celebration to engage artists, activists and all people to raise awareness on human rights through interactive discussions, live performances, workshops, readings, film and the creation of art.

Welcome to Muafangejo Season 2018 @FNCC.
