Africa 21e siècle ; Photographie contemporaine africaine (Africa 21st Century; Contemporary African Photography)

Here, for the first time, are the works of a generation of photographers from all corners of the African continent, brought together by Ekow Eshun. Far from a Western vision heavy with stereotypes, Ekow Eshun observes the way in which contemporary photographers approach Africanity and present Africa as a psychic space as much as a physical one. It is a geographical territory, but also a state of mind that is reflected in their work: from the everyday life of sprawling cities and ever-changing landscapes to the weight of colonial and post-colonial legacies, as well as questions of gender, sexuality and identity. Bringing together more than 300 photographs by 51 artists, Africa 21st Century offers a fascinating panorama of a particularly dynamic part of contemporary photography. 51 sharp looks at contemporary societal, cultural, political and ecological issues.
