Still within GI-Lagos’ working theme of culture and urban spaces, the Institut will host a think-tank facilitated by Amelie Klein of the Vitra Design Museum.

An integral part of the Making Africa project is the process leading up to the exhibition. It entails multiple think tanks in African cities as well as places with important African communities such as Paris or London in which numerous theorists and practitioners from various cultural disciplines are involved in developing the exhibition.

A key role is played here by social media. Via Twitter, Facebook and other platforms, the Vitra Design Museum will invite the African public to take part in the curatorial process. Networks are to be established that will remain in place for exhibition-related communication, education and events throughout the entire exhibition tour – and beyond – and forge permanent links between the African design community and the international scene.

Date: Saturday, 18 October , 10am – 2pm

Venue: Goethe-Institut Lagos.
