“UFA – University of African Futures invites artists who, from a critical approach to the notion of the future, ask themselves what knowledge and what stories are necessary for us to imagine the times to come.
What place did the African continent occupy in the development of speeches presented as narratives of the future ? What imaginaries of Africa have been mobilized? What remains of the utopias of the non-aligned futures?
To explore these questions, the exhibition calls upon
artists-researchers who go back in time to deconstruct
clichés about Africa’s relationship to the future, and summon the mythologies of origins to invent alternatives.”
