SINDIKA DOKOLO FOUNDATION
Over the last years, the Sindika Dokolo Foundation has developed a conscious and responsible cultural policy, conceptualising and producing cultural, economic and political instruments and mechanisms for the development of contemporary African art.
The creation of the Sindika Dokolo African Collection of Contemporary Art, the support for the cultural movement in Luanda, the production of the first edition of the Luanda Triennial and the design and materialisation of the first African pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale, are considered unprecedented cultural realities in the African and worldwide context. With this in mind, a multipurpose cultural building has become an urgent necessity. Such a facility would enable the continuity of the movement and artistic efforts and events in Luanda and Angola. In turn, this would help develop a joint strategy with other African cities and nations, as well as a network and partnerships with international institutions.
Since we consider it essential that African aesthetic be reflected upon and their historical and scientific nature be recognised, we are committed to participating in fostering the cohesion of the parameters that define the soul and aesthetic of Angola and Africa.
The Sindika Dokolo Foundation is a not-‐for-‐profit institution of a technical/scientific, cultural and social nature, and unlimited duration, as published in the Diário Oficial Da República (official Angolan gazette) 3rd Series, no. 84, dated 13 JUL 2007, pages 2,849 to 2,853.
