Art Exhibition Black/White?

15 - 23.05.2008, 7:30 pm

Goethe-Institut

When Akindiya Rasheed Olaniyi (Akirash) returned to his studio in buzzing Nima after his first trip to Europe, he carried a lot of questions with him. Questions about the relationship and differences between Europe and Africa. Being at a literal and psychological distance from his birth ground, he wondered what dependence of foreign aid had yielded. Or why Africa exports raw materials to Europe and lacks a blossoming home industry. Questions that plausibly led to the theme of this exhibition: "Black/White?"

Fifty percent of the proceeds of the exhibition will be used for an art therapy program in Mental Hospital Accra, street children in Nima and in Cape Coast.
The guest speaker for the exhibition will be Seth Dei, CEO Leasafric Ghana and a passionate collector of art.
Jana Orlowski
, Deputy Head of Mission, German Embassy, will officially open the exhibition.
