See also the contribution of Alanna Lockward to the seminar ‘On Afrophobia: Towards Decolonial Curatorial Approaches’. With: Nana Adusei-Poku, Christine Eyene, Alanna Lockward and Christian Nyampeta. Moderated by Kjell Caminha.
Through interventions by curators, artists and researchers, the event suggested different approaches towards decolonial curatorial practices – seeking to acknowledge and promote Afropean knowledge and visibility, hopefully counteracting through art, on the increasing Afrophobia in today’s Europe.
