Making Africa at CCCB

A Continent of Contemporary Design.

Making Africa it’s an exhibition that showcases the work of over 120 African artists and creators and illustrates how design fuels economic and political changes. Making Africa speaks, from Africa, of a new continent “under construction” and places emphasis on its possibilities over its problems.

The exhibition offers a new tale of Africa, an invitation to value the continent from a brand new perspective. Many of the major African capitals are seeing the consolidation of a generation that, around culture and throughcreation and design, is defending its right to build itself in freedom, without foreign tutelage and contradicting the stereotypes projected from the West.

Making Africa exhibits the projects of artists and designers originating from and often working in Africa who are addressing a global audience and providing the world with a new perspective of their continent. They often work in various disciplines simultaneously and break with the conventional definitions of design, art, photography, architecture and film.

Making Africa shows works from diverse creative areas: design of objects and furniture, the graphic arts, illustration, fashion, architecture, urban planning, art, crafts, film and photography, in addition to digital and analog focuses.

Making Africa has been co-produced by the Vitra Design Museum (where it was shown from 14 March to 13 September 2015) and the Guggenheim Bilbao (presented from 30 October to 21 February 2016), with the collaboration of Kulturstiftung des Bundes and the Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne.
