The fourth edition of „Treffpunkt Afrika“ with this year’s festival topic „African Futurisms“ will provide insights into African and African diasporic imaginations of the future and its utopias in the field of art & culture.
International artists and cultural professionals will offer space for discussion during a two-day symposium, film screenings and concerts, bringing us closer to their futuristic ideas in their role as time travelers and representatives of alternative visions of the world.
Festival venues are Stadtwerkstatt and AEC Seminarraum.
Come and join us!
The international art and culture festival „African Futurisms“ aims to engage in a variety of ways with the contemporary art avant-garde of Africa and the African diaspora in Europe. Creators of art and culture will present and discuss African future scenarios and visionary utopias. Current developments on the African continent will be artistically illuminated. A differentiated mosaic of an African-diasporic modernity characterized by globalization, digitization and urbanity should emerge, which at the same time represents the starting point for a reflection on Western projections.
