When most countries in Central and Sub-Saharan Africa gained their independence in the late 1950s and 1960s, experimental and futuristic architecture became a principal means by which the young nations expressed their national identities. At the same time, this architecture also shows the difficulties, contradictions and dilemmas that the countries experienced in their independence process: in most cases, the architects were not local, but came from countries such as Poland, Yugoslavia, the Scandinavian nations, Israel, or even from the former colonial powers.

The exhibition, researched and curated by architect and author Manuel Herz, looks at these phenomenon as he documents more than 80 buildings in Ghana, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, and Zambia.

The exhibition is accompanied by the 700-page publication “African Modernism – Architecture of Independence”. The curator, Manuel Herz, will be present for the exhibition opening and framework programme
