THE BOOKLETS

Since the exhibition FAVT is not only quite comprehensive, but also quite extensive, in size as well as context, we created booklets, little guiders, to explain in a little bit more detail what the artwork shown is concerned with and how the exchange and collaboration of artist and researcher reveals itself in the process. Additional they incorporate reflections on the artworks and the specific projects. In this innovative process not only differences between the approaches appear, but more importantly, the communalities shared by the different disciplines.

The booklets connect the artists and researchers, but also the curatorial concept underlying the project. Through 8 keywords relating to specific aspects of the topic: Future Africa – Visions, the connection between each project of the exhibition and the research of the Bayreuth Academy is made even more visible.

Designer Emeka Alams created symbols for each keyword presented in the booklets according to the kategorization made by the curators. They represent the aspect of future reflected on in the artwork and therefore serve as a guiding line through not only the physical exhibition space but also the mental journey it takes you on.
