Double Feature: 1. Akinbode Akinbiyi; 2. Emeka Okereke: Sidewalk Earrings. A Conversation About Wandering in Cities
8. October 2020 @ 19:00 — 21:00 CEST
Followed by a screening of the short film I WONDER AS I WANDER (2019–2020) by Emeka Okereke about Akinbode Akinbey.
Berlin-based Nigerian photographer Akinbode Akinbiyi captures intimate scenes and communal life in cities such as Lagos, Berlin, Johannesburg, Bamako, and Chicago, among many other locations. Akinbode Akinbiyi’s anthology of black and white pictures reflects a world of overlooked narratives, gestures, and beliefs amid noisy streets, coastal horizons, and dense neighborhoods. For Akinbiyi, wandering is a central tool for documenting social realities and the psychogeography of urban environments.
Emeka Okereke is a Nigerian visual artist and writer who lives and works between Lagos and Berlin, frequently moving between one and the other. A past member of the renowned Nigerian photography collective Depth of Field (DOF), he holds a bachelor’s/master’s degree from the Ecole Nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris and has exhibited in biennales and art festivals in cities across the world, notably Lagos, Bamako, Cape Town, London, Berlin, Bayreuth, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Brussels, Johannesburg, New York, Washington, Barcelona, Seville, Madrid, and Paris.
