More information on Contemporary African Art since 1980, the authors Okwui Enwezor and Chika Okeke-Agulu, and the lecture Okwui Enwezor held in Amsterdam.
Contemporary African Art since 1980 is the first major survey of the work of more than 200 contemporary African artists from diverse situations, locations, and generations who work either in or outside of Africa, but whose practices engage and occupy the social and cultural complexities of the continent: from the end of the postcolonial utopias of the sixties during the 1980s to the geopolitical, economic, technological and cultural shifts incited by globalization.
