Two new publications on photography from African perspectives will be launched in June 2017: an online interview project developed over the last few years with 17 photographers from Bamako and Dakar, guided by Bärbel Küster in collaboration with students from The Stuttgart State Academy of Art an Design, and Contemporary And (C&) together with Aperture magazine will present a special edition „platform Africa“ profiling photographers, biennales, art spaces, and educational workshops.

Bärbel Küster and Clara Pacquet from the Photography and Orality project and Aïcha Diallo, associate editor of C& will discuss their publications reflecting the diverse conversations on African photography over the last 20 years. The talk will lead to a broader discussion about the narratives, dialogues, and polyphonic presences of African photography and image-making today.
