Contested Terrains, Part 2

This video brought to you by Tate.org.uk

In these two videos, we take a close look at an exhibition put on by four artists currently living and working in Africa. These artists subvert assumptions about Africa's past and present, exploring the tensions between tradition and modernity. In this part, Kader Attia creates a dialogue between Western and African art and theory, while Sammy Baloji creates parallel stories of industrial heritage.
