Andrea Stultiens: The Kaddu Wasswa Archive

Until 8 Sept. Dutch artist Andrea Stultiens presents the archival account of a Ugandan man, Kaddu Wasswa, whose personal story provides a unique glimpse into the social and cultural life of Uganda over half a century.

Born in 1933 when Uganda was a British colony, Wasswa has lived under the regimes of Milton Obote and Idi Amin, and fathered 18 children, ten of whom died of AIDS.

Over the decades he has filled countless scrapbooks by documenting his personal events and thoughts.

When Stultiens met Wasswa in 2008 through his grandson, the photographer Arthur C. Kisitu, she was fascinated by his unusual archive.

Together, the three of them decided to tell his life story through photographs based on his extensive and meticulously-compiled visual diaries.

Tues-Sun 10.00-16.30. Mon 12.00-16.30
