Contar Áfricas! / Narrating Africas!

The exhibit is based on a scientific-museological exercise. This exercise was a challenge to dozens of researchers and experts who selected pieces and words with which they planned a journey to discover a diverse, manifold Africa.

The exhibition will feature iconic pieces of varied nature and provenance, selected by researchers and experts from several areas. Each piece tells a story and calls for analysis and reflection by the expert who has selected it.

From an overall perspective, these pieces and their respective analyses tell the story of a plural Africa. The choices made by the researchers and experts are the basis of the museological narrative, of a self-making and touring circuit which is open and unconditioned rather than predefined.
