What we have done
The column has been coming out regularly twice a month since its launch in two languages: Italian and English. The range of authors who have contributed so far is truly wide, including such prominent names as Wole Soyinka, Achille Mbembe, Roberto Saviano, Simon Njami, Aida Muluneh and others alongside with our AtWork initiatives participants Gloria Kiconco (Kampala), Melania Fusco (Venice), Hanna Minyae (Addis Ababa), Tichakunda Mafundikwa (Harare) and many others. This horizontal approach to the editorial line reflects our philosophy of open culture and open knowledge circulation.
When suitable, we like to accompany the articles with images of contemporary African artists and the diaspora, in order to continue to showcase the vibrant creative talents on our platform. So far we have received generous permissions to publish the works of Sammy Baloji, Kudzanai Chiurai, Aida Muluneh, Wangechi Mutu, Ayana V. Jackson, Boriz Nzebo, Mwangi Hutter and many others.
“All claims that Africa has been explored are as premature as news of her imminent demise.”
Wole Soyinka — Of Africa
In 2015 we started an editorial partnership with the platform Another Africa founded by Missla Liebsikal. We have re-published their series “Tracing Emerging Contemporary Art Practices” and “In/Visible Voices of Women”.
We have also established a media partnership with Art Africa, republishing and translating their selected pieces in Italian.
