Together with Sana Sanaa and CAP Association, we present an insightful into the international photography world. Guest speaker Benjamin Füglister is the artistic director and initiator of CAP Association based in Basel, Switzerland. The association executes the CAP Prize for Contemporary African Photography is awarded annually since 2012 to five photographic series, chosen by an international jury, that engage with the African continent or its diaspora. This annual celebration of African photography quickly led to the implementation of the transdisciplinary IAF Basel - Festival for Contemporary Art.

Benjamin Füglister will talk about his experiences within these projects, providing insights into the application processes and decision making behind the scenes of the CAP Prize. In a discussion with Emmaus Kimani (Brush Tu) and Joel Lukhovi (Nairobi Beyond), the role of photography in and from Kenya will be examined.
