Studien- und Begegnungsreise nach Dakar, Senegal vom 2.-15. Mai 2010 anlässlich der 9. DAK’ART – Biennale für zeitgenössische Kunst aus Afrika

Aus Anlass der 9. DAK’ART - Biennale für zeitgenössische afrikanische Kunst organisiert AfricAvenir vom 2. bis 15. Mai 2010 eine Studien- und Begegnungsreise nach Dakar, Senegal. Nicht nur die vielfältigen Ausstellungen im Rahmen der Kunstbiennale bieten Möglichkeiten der Begegnung. In Dialogforen mit senegalesischen Künstler/innen, Politiker/innen und Wissenschaftler/innen, bei Museums- und Filmbesuchen sowie bei Stadtrundgängen und Konzerten soll auf der Reise der Kontakt zur Kunst, Kultur und Geschichte Dakars und des Senegals vermittelt werden. Ebenso wichtig wie ungewöhnlich wird zudem der persönliche Kontakt zu den Dakarois, den Einwohnern von Dakar, sein. So werden z.B. Mahlzeiten oder Tee-Zeremonien nicht in touristischen Restaurants eingenommen, sondern vor allem in Privathaushalten senegalesischer Familien, - Begegnungen, die Einblick geben in den ganz gewöhnlichen Alltag vor Ort. |+| weitere Infos
