Voyage à Dakar will be part of Sense of Place in the Amsterdam Museum from 11 December 2020 to 28 March 2021.

At Gorée Island, Senegal, I will present a site specific installation of Voyage à Dakar, March 2019.

Me and my son traveled overland from Amsterdam to Dakar, meeting family, friends and other travelers
– all Senegalese migrants – along the way. The project is in progress, resulting in a book and exhibition.

Soil in my Pocket is an art installation on migration, in collaboration with visual artist Ellert Haitjema.
It is a multi-screen installation, both at the outside and inside of EYE Filminstitute. 

I will present the first images of Amsterdam – Dakar and the photo album I made with my Senegalese family
in the Fotodok group exhibition There is Something about My Family.My publication “Presence in Absence” is ready: Text by Salah M. Hassan, design by René Put, published by 
Timmer Art Books / Lecturis.

published an interview with Koyo Kouoh in which she talks about the show “Absence”.
“Graves of immigrants by Judith Quax is undoubtedly the most significant work of the exhibition.” (…)

A selection of the immigration project is published in the # 25 edition of Nka Journal of Contemporary African Art,
accompanied by an introduction by curator Salah M. Hassan.
