We are familiar with Berlin, Paris, London and perhaps even New York. But what do we know about Lagos, Cape Town or Kinshasa? This exhibition features the work of African photographers, offering a fresh perspective on and artistic insights into their urban environment.
The photographs explore daily life in the cities, the uncontrollability of nature, industry, traces of the past and pop culture. Some of the photographers have already exhibited at major exhibitions such as documenta, while others are presenting their work in Germany for the first time.
Some live in Africa, while others are scattered across all five continents. The photographs offer insights into other cultures from the perspective of African artists.
