Divine Comedy

Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory from the Perspective of Contemporary African Artists (German)

Sixty artists from twenty-two African countries thematically explore The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri, employing a broad range of artistic media such as painting, photography, sculpture, video works, installations, and performances. The exhibition catalogue Divine Comedy: Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory may be considered a triptych, following the rhythm of Dante’s famous poem. The African artists at the core of this project, which presents reproductions and presentations of their artwork, focus on notions taken from the poem that they have charged with different meanings, linked both to their artistic practices and their respective personalities. Five essays written by authors from various countries create immediate links to our contemporary times and add a further dimension to the interpretation of the works presented. Crafted from different types of paper, this book is meant to become a collector’s item.
