Adjoa Armah (b. 1988 Accra, Ghana) is an anti-disciplinary artist, writer and educator. Her practice is concerned with narrative, the archive, pedagogy, Black ontology and spatial consciousness. Armah is the founder of the archive of Ghanian photographic negatives Saman, through which she experiments with models of institution building grounded in Akan temporalities and West African technologies of social and historical mediation.
