The Goethe-Institut launches the publication Just Ask! From Africa to Zeitgeist at the Joburg Art Fair with a panel discussion that features some of the contributors to the book and participants in the Master Class programme.
What are the significant conversations in African photography today? This alternative art guide book shows current developments and tendencies – a contemporary manual with a sense of humour that speaks to both young and professional photographers, collectors and people interested in photography.
Just Ask! is meant to be an introduction to contemporary African photography, and more broadly, a reflection of contemporary practice. There is also a focus on some of the African photographers that participated in the Goethe-Institut Johannesburg’s portfolio workshop, the Photographers Master Class, which has been running since 2008. The richly illustrated publication is accompanied by essays by renowned authors, curators and art critics.
Authors (among others): Akinbode Akinbiyi, Chris Dercon, Simon Njami, Frédérique Chapuis, Katrin Peters- Klaphake, Sean O’Toole.
