PHOTO EXHIBITION: EVERYDAY POETICS - INSTAGRAMMING EAST AFRICA
''Never in the history of Africa has there been a period where the most photographed and shared photos are not about wars, poverty, diseases, but about everyday life on the continent, and most importantly, these stories are told by Africans'' says the Ugandan photographer Edward Soyinka Echwalu, with whom I have the pleasure to launch a photo exhibition at Muzej afričke umetnosti / The Museum of African Art in Belgrade on 18 April (7 pm) featuring the works of 5 talented East African photographers on Instagram.
I'm super exicted about this, to say it mildly. Belgrade is my favourite city in Europe - and all the elements of Africa, expression, representation, diversity, social media and visualisation, which make up the fundaments for this exhibition, are also part of everything else I seem to engage in!
Do come for one or two of the sessions in the programme if in Belgrade! Check it out here.
