Rita Ouédraogo works at Framer Framed as Curator and Program Coordinator. She’s also co-curator of the Hartwig Art Collection Fund 2020-21.
Rita Ouédraogo studied Cultural Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). She lives and works in Amsterdam. Her work as a curator, writer and research & community programmer is driven by her interest in the African diaspora, decolonisation of organisations, institutional racism, pop culture and social issues. Rita worked on various projects aimed at making museum collections more widely accessible. She researches questions related to cooperation and solidarity: how can cooperation take place in situations of power inequality, and from a decolonial point of view in particular?
In 2020 Rita was responsible for the composition of the programme The Hmm at Framer Framed and co-curator of the project A Funeral for Street Culture (2021) together with Metro 54.
