The Nordic Africa Institute.
2010 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.)) [Artistic work]
Abstract [en]

A photo exhibition

The photo exhibition "Africa/has/the/floor" includes photographs of 20 of the African writers who visited the Göteborg Book Fair 2010. They write prose, poetry, drama and literature for children and the youth. They write in many different languages. These many facets of African literature are represented in this exhibition, which includes photographs representing the new generation of African writers as well as their established peers. The Swedish-Mozambican photographer Sérgio Santimano has taken the photographs and Anita Theorell has written the writers’ presentations.

The photo exhibition is available to download for anybody, free of charge and is protected by a Creative Commons license. The photographs may be used for non-commercial purposes, provided that you state the source and the name of the photographer. It offers an excellent opportunity for, in particular, libraries who wish to showcase African literature to their visitors. All photographs are accompanied with a bibliographical note.
