Africa2020 is a national cultural project dedicated to the 54 countries of the African continent, commissioned by the French state. For several months, from December 2020 until June 2021, artistic and cultural proposals will be presented resolutely turned towards the future as envisaged on the vast continent of Africa. Guided by the thought of Felwinn Sarr and Octavia Butler, le lieu unique brings together original visions of tomorrow, not tied to Western perspectives.
