About Doung Anwar Jahangeer
doung anwar jahangeer is an artist/architect, ‘Creol’Mauritian-born, living in Durban, South Africa. His experience of the ‘profession’ led him to broaden his definition of architecture focusing on space, an architecturewithoutwalls. In 2000 doung conceptualised and implemented ‘The CityWalk’ initiative as a way of directly engaging and observing the flux and mutability his adopted city. His work is multi-media and and includes live performance, film/video, sculpture, painting, installation and architecture. He has collaborated with numerous international artists / organisations in Scandinavia, Europe and numerous African countries where he has instigated projects of a diverse nature including site responsive architectural installations; ephemeral, temporary and permanent, that engages the urban fabric often in an openly critical and sometimes provocative manner.
In 2008 he co-founded dala, an NPO focusing on experiments and initiatives which engage art/architecture for social justice.
