Over the last 6 years, Dutch photographer Lard Buurman visited 14 cities in 12 countries on the African continent. His careful compositions of the everyday life in the urban context give an interesting insight on how these cities work.
Between 12 April and 3 May, the exhibition Africa Junctions is presented by Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam and Looiersgracht 60, a new project space for art, design and architecture in Amsterdam.
On 23 April, his Buurman’s book Africa Junctions, Capturing the City, published by Hatje Cantz Verlag, will be launched in the exhibition. Next to Buurman’s work, the book includes reflections on the work and the cities by N’Goné Fall, Chris Abani, Alexander Opper and Chris Keulemans.
Introductions by N’Goné Fall and Berend van der Lans lead to a debate with aforementioned and Lard Buurman, moderated by Marcia Luyten (author of Dag Afrika and presenter of the TV programme Buitenhof).
The event starts at 20:00hrs and can be attended if you register.
