About The Blog

The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis have joined together to create the Contemporary-Pulitzer blog which, for the first time, combines the perspectives of two separate institutions with differing missions within the same blog.


Offering alternating posts each day from the Pulitzer and Contemporary, the blog provides a candid look at the behind-the-scenes workings of both arts organizations.

On Wednesday, November 7th, British-Nigerian film-maker and video artist Zina Saro-Wiwa was invited by the African Students Association of Washington University in St. Louis to speak about her work. She showed clips from her film, This is My Africa. The clips she showed us were answers to the question: “What do you want the African continent to be like in the year 2060″ and there was a section on quirky colloquialisms from different regions of the continent. She also showed us her NYTimes documentaryTransition and then clips from her most recent work, a documentary and video installation piece calledEaten By The Heart, which deals with the “performance of love” in various African, African-American, and African-Caribbean contexts. Zina mentioned that the inspiration for this project came in part from her childhood, when she reached the conclusion that Nigerian parents do not display affection for each other in public (or even in front of their children), and she wanted to know if this applied to all Africans and African Diasporans.
