Venue: Goethe-Institut Auditorium
Time: 8pm
Entry: Free

24Nairobi is one of the most notable photo projects realized in Kenya for decades. Organized by Nick Ysenburg and with conceptual input from Binyavanga Wainaina and Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor, 13 photographers documented the very different and fascinating worlds of Nairobi over a 24-hour day and night cycle.

The photographs were accompanied by texts from 9 writers who have variously appeared in Kwani? publications. The exhibition, supported by Ford Foundation, was shown at the Nairobi National Museum and in a smaller show but with ommited photos (from the night section), at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi.

On this evening, the 24Nairobi book will be launched, published by Kwani Trust, and re-open the exhibition with an additional slide show: projected images in the darkened Auditorium of the Goethe-Institut.

In cooperation with Kwani Trust and Ford Foundation
