In October 2015 The Showroom and The Otolith Collective presented the Cape Town-based outfit Chimurenga. For their first UK presentation, Chimurenga infiltrated The Showroom’s building in the form of The Chimurenga Library, inserting themselves into the existing frameworks, functions and structures of the space without displacing its everyday activities.
For the first five days, The Chimurenga Library hosted the Pan African Space Station (PASS) – Chimurenga's online music radio station and pop-up studio featuring a live broadcasting programme of music, interviews and events with Chimurenga collaborators in London including musicians, journalists, writers, curators and filmmakers.
Bringing together existing work, research material and areas of interest whilst at the same time expanding focal points, the project represented a moment of activation, interaction and expansion within a mobile and complex network of geographical and organisational contexts.
