On Moshoeshoe’s day (11 March) 2023 Lerato Bereng collaborated with us to put together a soft launch of the publication How to make a country. The book was produced on the occasion of the the exhibition of the same name that took place at FRAC Poitou-Charentes, Angoulême, France. The exhibition and publication were curated by Lerato Bereng and featured the following artists/ collectives: Ba re e ne re Literature (Lesotho), Zineb Benjelloun (Morocco), Dineo Seshee Bopape (South Africa), Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi (South Africa) and Frida Orupabo (Norway). 

The launch consisted on a reflective talk between Ba re e ne re director Lineo Segoete and curator Lerato Bereng on the process they were involved in to include the Ba re dictionary component of the book, as well as their personal relationships with their language and culture within the global and creative arena.
