At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.


Just Ask!

What are the significant conversations in African photography today? This alternative art guide book shows current developments and tendencies – a contemporary manual with a sense of humour that speaks to both young and professional photographers, collectors and photography interested people.
Just Ask! is meant to be an introduction to contemporary African photography, as well as, more broadly, a reflection of its state. There is also a focus on some of the photographers that participated in the Goethe-Institut Johannesburg’s portfolio workshop, the Photographers’ Master Class, which has been running since 2008. The richly illustrated publication is accompanied by essays of renowned authors, curators and art critics.
