sbu1Trans-Africa” is part of manifold memory spaces and movements that connect the continent with the Old and the New World.

Opening / Eröffnung / 26. September 2013, 19 Uhr               ifa-Galerie Berlin / Linienstraße 139-140 / 10115 Berlin

THE SPACE BETWEEN US engages with the trans-African transcultural and transcontinental relations extending all the way to Germany. It focuses on artistic positions that connect with critical discourses and render visible the history of the relations.

The project makes use of various exhibition formats: the display of photographic reproductions on large-scale advertising panels in the public space and the presentation of experimental positions at the ifa Galleries. A reading room, a musical workshop, a film programme, city excursions and guided tours are further offers. The variety of formats – and their interconnections, the movements they provoke – mirrors the complexity and the specificity of each medium, manifesting our mutual relationships and relating to the urban environment.
