8th edition of the Bamako Encounters
African Photography Biennial
After the success of the first exhibition, La Centrale électrique presents the 8th edition of the Bamako Encounters. On the programme is a selection of photographs and videos with ‘borders’ as subject matter, be they geographical, political, social or religious.
The artists cast a view of commitment on migration, the relationship with the other, the disappearance of borders as a consequence of globalisation or, in contrast, the construction of walls to protect them. These are strong images, full of questions, charged with emotions.
Unprecedented in Belgium, this exhibition will be on view from March at La Centrale électrique in Brussels and at the FotoMuseum in Antwerp.
In partnership with CULTURESFRANCE, the Ministry of Culture of Mali, the French Embassy in Belgium and the FotoMuseum in Antwerp.
