Making Africa – a continent of contemporary design


Making Africa
is presented at the Bilbao branch of the Guggenheim Museum until 21st February 2016.
Making Africa – A Continent of Contemporary Design showcases works from the full spectrum of the creative field: object and furniture design, graphic arts, illustration, fashion, architecture, urban planning, art, craft, film, photography, digital and analogue approaches. These works deliberately occupy the grey area between the disciplines, and yet they provide concrete answers to the question of what twenty-first century design can and should achieve. For example, they recognize new possibilities in the use of material; they are oriented to the process rather than the result and make bold statements about the future.
