African Architecture Matters, presents a day of presentations and talks dedicated to critically exploring and (re)imagining the future of African cities. This programme accompanies the exhibition Water Cities Rotterdam.
In four different panel conversations, twelve artists and four mentors situated in the African context discuss the paradox between various cities’ present conditions and the ‘prescribed’ futurity of ‘the African city’. They will look at how the proposed future of the African city is fueled by unsustainable dynamics and offer alternative tools and methods.
The four mentors who will each lead a panel discussion are: Nzinga B. Mboup (Senegal/Cameroon), Hicham Bouzid (Morocco), Ola Hassanain (Sudan/The Netherlands), and Khensani Jurczok-de Klerk (South Africa/Switzerland).
