Kevin Osepa

Kevin Osepa (1994) was born and raised in Curaçao. In 2017 he graduated from the University of the Arts Utrecht in photography. With the Mester Blousé project in which he examines how much his identity has been shaped by the spirituality and rituals of his native country, he became the youngest ever nominee for the Volkskrant Visual Arts Award. Numerous nominations, awards and exhibitions soon followed, among others in the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, Nederlands Fotomuseum, Amsterdam Museum and TENT. Osepa quickly became an important young voice in the art world. He shifted his focus from photography to film, and his debut “Watamula” (2020) won three nominations for a Gouden Kalf. A key theme in Osepa’s oeuvre is his research into Afro-Caribbean identity within a postcolonial reality. The stories he tells often have a strong personal starting point. “La Última Ascensión” is his second short film.
