Digital Imaginaries ENG

Africa is changing and digitization is playing a pivotal role in it. Throughout the whole continent, digital practices are emerging which radically transform African societies and their worldwide perception. However, digital infrastructures remain marked by local and global asymmetries despite the widespread use of mobile phones. Over the course of two years and in three African and European cities, the interdisciplinary exhibition and research project Digital Imaginaries took this contradictory diversity of digital phenomena as its starting point in order to explore possible digital futures in Africa.
