Catalogue GEO-graphics (English only)
A map of ART practices in AFRICA, past and present
GEO-graphics, the festival’s main exhibition, sets out to recontextualise more than 220 objects of breathtaking beauty from the Museum and from other Belgian public and private collections by bringing them face to face with the work of contemporary African artists. These are being chosen by eight arts centres carefully selected from all over Africa because of the active role they are playing in the development of the cultural sector in the continent. The art centres’ interventions are inscribed in a scenography which sheds new light on how to read the relationship between old and new by highlighting the affinities and ruptures between past and present.
Divisée en quatre grandes zones géographiques, l’exposition GEO-graphics réuni environ 200 chefs-d’œuvre ethnographiques de collections privées et muséales belges.
