In occasion of the 7th European Conference on African Studies organized by the Center for African Studies Basel, the show presents works by various African Artists. The exhibition explores the relationship between art and urban transformation, the rural and urban relationships in Africa. Each artist deals in its own way with their collective cultural identity and thereby aims at generating historical awareness or undertake inventive infrastructural interventions. The exhibition includes projects realised for the Salon Urbain de Douala (SUD), a triennial festival dedicated to public art in Douala, Cameroon.

The group show includes works by Philip Aguirre y Otegui (BEL), Mustapha Akrim (MAR), Malala Andrialavidrazana (FRA/MDG), Iván Argote (COL/FRA), Kader Attia (FRA), Philippine Barbou (FRA), Bili Bidjocka (CMR), Sylvie Blocher (FRA), Mariela Borello (CAN), Lard Buurman (NLD), C.A.I.R.E.: Kamiel Verschuren (NLD)/Lucas Grandin (FRA), Amandine Braud (FRA), Libia Castro (ESP/NLD), Olafur Olafsson (ISL), Loris Cecchini (ITA), Samuel Chêne (FRA), Collectif Autodafé (CMR), Collectif Kamera: Hervé Dangla (FRA), Stéphane Akoa (CMR), Aliette Cosset (FRA), Isabel Forner (FRA), Sylvain Ohl (FRA), Ginette Daleu (CMR), Etienne Delacroix (BEL), Eric Delphin (CMR), Cecile Demessine (FRA), Maksaens Denis (HTI), Romuald Dikoumé (CMR), Danièle Diwouta-Kotto (CMR), Sandrine Dole (FRA), Justin Ebanda (CMR), Dodji Efoui (CMR), Kouo Eyango (CMR), Em’kal Eyongakpa (CMR), Justine Gaga (CMR), Erik Göngrich (DEU), Lucas Grandin (FRA), Juan Fernando Herrán (COL), Chourouk Hriech (MAR/FRA), ICU art projects: Kamiel Verschuren (NLD)/Xandra Nibbeling (NLD)/Lucas Grandin (FRA), Serge-Olivier Fokoua (CMR), Jean-Jacques Kante (CMR), Aser Kash (COD), Frédéric Keiff (FRA), Joe Kessy (CMR), Koko Komégné (CMR), Achilleka Komguem (CMR), Christina Kubisch (DEU), Faouzi Laatiris (MAR), Goddy Leye (CMR), Salifou Lindou (CMR), Mauro Lugaresi (NLD), Michèle Magema (COD/FRA), Malam (CMR), Ato Malinda (KEN), Lionel Manga (CMR)/Philippe Mouillon (FRA), Landry Mbassi (CMR), Alioum Moussa (CMR), Joël Mpah Dooh (CMR), Edwige Ndjeng (CMR), Benjamin Ewane Ndoumbe (CMR), Jean-David Nkot (CMR), Boris Nzebo (CMR), Malika Ouedraogo (FRA), Laure Poinsot (FRA), Roberto Paci Dalò (ITA), Younès Rahmoun (MAR), Raumlabor (DEU), RAW foundation: Bart-Jan Hooft (SWZ/NLD)/Calanne Moroney (IRL), Tracey Rose (ZAF), Joseph-Francis Sumégné (CMR), Superuse/2012 Architects: Jan Jongert (NLD)/Arie van Ziel (NLD), Aimé Tallo (CMR), Pascale Marthine Tayou (CMR), René Tchebetchou (CMR), The Trinity Session: Stephen Hobbs (ZAF)/Marcus Neustetter (ZAF), Ties Ten Bosch (NLD), Léah Touitou (FRA), Kristine Tsala (CMR), Kamiel Verschuren (NLD), Silvain Wakeu Fogain (CMR), Jules Wokam (CMR), Nelisiwe Xaba (ZAF), Hervé Yamguen (CMR), Emile Youmbi (CMR), Hervé Youmbi (CMR), Yabhood Zohwko (CMR) and Roberto Paci Dalò (ITA).
