Opening in Düsseldorf,

Under the artistic direction of Simon Njami (photo), an international team of curators (see dates and facts as well as the photo) has assembled this overview of the artistic production in Africa and the African diaspora. 88 artists show works from the last 10 years, among them several specially created for the exhibition, including: paintings, drawings, sculptures, assemblages, multi-part installations, photography, videos. Besides the visual arts, the exhibition also features furniture design, music, literature and fashion.

The touring show started on 24 July 2004 at the museum kunst palast in Düsseldorf (Germany), and then travels to the Hayward Gallery in London, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo. Further venues in Africa and North America are being considered.
