Film Screening- ' Black Stars of Ghana- Art District'
Nubuke Foundation, Accra
Friday, 13 March 2015 at 17:00

Visual artists as diverse as Prof. Ablade Glover, Wiz Kudowor, Kofi Setordji, Marigold Akufo-Addo, Larry Otoo, Gabriel Eklou, Kobina Nyarko and Kwadwo Ani talk about their artistic career, their views on the status of contemporary art in Ghana and the motivations that inspire them to do their best work. The videos are excerpts from a big archive of research that was started in 2005 by Safia Dickersbach, a Berlin-based Tanzanian curator and publisher. The conversations that are now presented document the development of visual art and contemporary culture in both practice and discourse in Ghana today.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A with some of the artists and the curator at the end of the screening.
