Louisiana, Humlebæk, Denmark 25 Jun 2015 - 25 Oct 2015
The Africa exhibition is the third chapter in Louisiana’s major series Architecture, culture and identity. In 2011, the museum unveiled the first chapter – NEW NORDIC – and in 2012, it turned attention toward the Arab world with the ARAB CONTEMPORARY exhibition.
The third exhibition presents a number of striking impressions and living traditions from the African continent, and like the first two, it takes place at the intersection of architecture, contemporary art and culture. Louisiana’s architecture exhibitions are never simply about building construction and aesthetics, but are rather about society, about the defining, interpreting and transforming type of intervention that architecture contributes to both the physical and mental spaces that constitute our social communities. An architecture exhibition at Louisiana concerns the life we live, the life that others live, and the life we could live.
