What do we know about the effect and image of the Covid-19-Pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa? What do we see and hear beyond some reports and some statistics? What does matter? What is the story of the place, the group, the individual? What is a better representation of reality than the individual artistic utterance of an experience and impression? What artistic positions are being formulated now?
Providing a voice and visibility for this specific situation and change on our planet. Focusing on a limited, less-priority area (Sub-Saharan Africa seen from the global North), its coverage often hampered by preconceived ideas and attitudes. Putting the individual in the center with its hopes and fears, with its daily-life reality. Acknowledging that art and artworks foster insights of a special, extraordinary nature. Showcasing humanity. Exchange, share. Creating a discourse.
Want to know more and see all the artworks and find intriguing pictures, ideas, texts?
"anders & gleich": a special side program to the exhibition:
During the three-month exhibition, a development-oriented side program has been offered in Berlin and online that explores the complex relationships and interconnections between the Global South and North.
It was curated by Oumar Diallo (Guinea-Conakry / Afrika-Haus Berlin) and Ulrich Wünsch (Germany / SABAA.education) with the support of Johanna Griebert (Germany / Your Art Beat e.V.).
Funding came via SDG-means by Stiftung Nord-Süd-Brücken, Berlin.
