One of our most expected exhibitions will concentrate on Photonovels, in Western and Non-Western contexts. Hosted by the public library Dokk1 and curated by Frédérique Deschamps & Olubukola Gbadegesin, it will feature fine examples of this often underrated genre of visual storytelling.

The history of this medium will be illustrated by photo novels from different eras and countries such as Spain, USA, Italy, France, and Belgium.

This show will also contain several issues of the Yoruba Photoplay Series (incl. Yoruba Rono, Oba Koso, Omuti, Ologbo Dudu, Asiko Na To); An original novel (Palm Wine Drinkard by Amos Tutuola); A original issue of African Film magazine (with Lance Spearman); and an original issue of Magnet: The Yoruba Photoplay Magazine (with Johnny “Thunderman” Nelson).

Join us to experience Passion, Violence, Drama, Charm, and Treason from around the world and in its most splendid text-image representations.
