Africa is not striving to be modern anymore, that has already happened. It is modernity that is striving to be African.” – Alun Be (artist)
Africa in the Picture (AITP) presents an evening about the use of modern technology, such as virtual reality, as a medium for the imagination and creation of the future. In dialogue with great futurist pioneers of the cultural scene, Alun Be (France/Senegal), Bouba Dola (DR Congo/NL), Selly Raby Kane (Senegal), Makan Fofana (Mali/FR), Alun Be (France/Senegal) and Samira Hmouda (Maroc/Brussels), we explore Contemporary Identity versus The Future. Through the eyes of our guests, we analyse their work consisting of Avant Gardist suggestions for the creation of a future place in contemporary urban life and the formation of an identity through the use of technological equipment.
