The African Exile Museum

 

“The African Exile Museum” is a mobile exhibition platform for contemporary African art. Sixteen artistic positions tell a story about the social changes that are currently taking place on the African continent. It concerns questions of multiple identities, of the close interweaving of urbanity and the collapse of social systems as well as the personal stories about them.
