Abstract:

Dante Alighieri, employing a broad range of artistic media such as painting, photography, sculpture, video works, installations, and performances. This catalogue may be considered a triptych, following the rhythm of Dante's famous poem. The African artists at the core of this project, which presents reproductions and presentations of their artwork, focus on notions taken from the poem that they have charged with different meanings, linked both to their artistic practices and their respective personalities. Five essays written by authors from various countries create immediate links to our contemporary times and add a further dimension to the interpretation of the works presented. Artists include: Kader Attia, Mohamed Bourouissa, Nicholas Hlobo, Wangechi Mutu, Youssef Nabil, Zineb Sedira, Yinka Shonibare, Guy Tillim, and many others.
