SATELLITE SPACES



The exhibition project nucleus in Berlin will be complemented by satellite artistic interventions in five selected partner spaces in African cities. In each of the five spaces artists and thinkers will be invited to intervene performatively, in the form of a lecture, screenings or an exhibition in an art space or public space: One intervention before and after the main exhibition, which will serve as a prelude and epilogue to the exhibition and 3 during the course of the exhibition. The interventions will be relayed through live streaming and documented as videos on the project's website and blog.


Selected partner spaces are:
Kër Thiossane (Dakar, Senegal); Nairobi Arts Trust / Center for Contemporary Art of East Africa and THE NEST (Nairobi, Kenya); 5th Marrakech Biennale Satellite (Marrakech, Morocco); Video Art Network (VAN Lagos, Nigeria); Parking Gallery/Visual Arts Network of South Africa (VANSA, Johannesburg, South Africa).
