"Making Africa, a continent of contemporary design" at the Vitra Design Museum, Weil-am-Rhein.
It is time to give a voice to the “Black Continent”. This exhibition shines a new spotlight upon the contemporary design emerging from Africa.
Based upon various examples, “Making Africa” shows how design accompanies economic and political change on the continent and the tight engagement between relevant disciplines, such as beaux-arts, graphics, illustration, cinema, photography, architecture and urbanisation. In this highly effervescent setting, new media has heavily influenced this change in perspective.
Until 13th September. B.D. www.design-museum.de
