The exhibition project FAVT: Future Africa Visions in Time explores visions of future emerging from Africa and its diasporas. Its content derives from discursive collaborations between artists and researchers, resulting in innovative conceptual works that traverse aesthetic and scientific approaches. Through intensive conversations, artworks and conceptual positions were developed that critically engage with, reflect on, interpret, imagine, intervene into, disturb, translate or anticipate the concepts of ‘Future‘ and ‘Africa‘.
Concept by Dr. Katharina Fink, Storm Janse Van Rensburg, Dr. Nadine Siegert. Johannesburg edition curated by Anisha Soff. With works by Emeka Alams, Rui Assubuji, Syowia Kyambi, Kitso Lynn Lelliott, kara lynch, Alex Mawimbi, Tumi Mogorosi, Zohra Opoku, Abdï Ośmän, Simon Rittmeier, Ruth Sacks, Kae Sun.
On show until 19 October.
