From March until September, one of the world’s leading centres of design, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein will be exhibiting the work of over 120 artists and designers from across the continent.

Making Africa – A Continent of Contemporary Design, illustrates how design accompanies and fuels economic and political changes on the continent. Africa is presented as a hub of experimentation generating new approaches and solutions of worldwide relevance – and as a driving force for a new discussion of the potential of design in the twenty-first century.

From photography by Mozambique’s Mário Macilau to eyewear sculptures by Kenyan artist Cyrus Kabiru and furniture by Mali’s Cheick Diallo, Making Africa – A Continent of Contemporary Design looks like an exhibition for art and design lovers of all kinds to make a b line for!
