Chinese Urbanism in Africa in DenmarkClose

After a great opening of the exhibition ‘Facing East’ at Storefront for Art and Architecture last week, we’re happy to announce the opening of the group show ‘Africa – Architecture, Culture and Identity’ at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. Michiel Hulshof (Tertium) and Daan Roggeveen (MORE Architecture) participate in this exhibition with research work from their project ‘Chinese Urbanism in Africa’. With a comprehensive presentation of architecture projects, contemporary art and cultural history, a story of Africa on the rise is told. This exhibition shows that there are multiple alternative narratives about contemporary culture and history from the African continent’s many regions. These are necessary to refine our image of and view on Africa. Louisiana’s architecture exhibitions are never just about construction and aesthetics, but rather about the physical and mental spaces that form our social communities, which architecture also shapes, interprets and changes. An architecture exhibition at Louisiana affects the life we live, the life that others live and the life we could live. The show includes work by Diebedo Francis Kere, Kunlé Adeyemi, Lard Buurman and many others.
