The one at Afrika Museum

Some weeks ago I visited Afrika Museum with my mom. We went for the Photo Exhibition 'Afrotopia'. This exhibit was previously shown at the eleventh edition of the African Photography Biennial in Bamako (Mali), and it's for the first time that it's shown outside of Bamako. Works of forrty contemporary African photographers were chosen and show new insights of the past, shines light on the present and offers new perspectives for the future. 

As a photography-enthousiast, this was right up my alley, I loved the diversity of the works shown. We will even try to squeeze in another visit before the exhibition ends the beginning of september! If you're able to go, I can highly recommend a visit. If not, the photos below and this very short video give an impression of what can be seen. A previous post about the same museum can be found here.

The museum also offers an outdoor area, where traditional African villages and compounds can be seen.


  1. What an interesting looking exhibit!

  2. Sounds like such a great exhibit, Marieken:) I remember your first post about this museum. It would be great if that exhibit comes here to TO. There's a Vivian Maier one I've been dying to see but the museum is a two-hour drive from where I am and I'm a lazy driver.

  3. Sounds like a great exhibit. hanks for sharing.

  6. Your town always has the best exhibitions and events! I love the one with the colorful palm trees and how cool that they re-created a traditional village!
