02/05/18 – 09/05/18 ‘Électromagnétique Mobile’ as part of the off-programme of Dak’Art 2018, Dakar (SN)
Following a study trip to Dakar in 2016, a selection of artists are taking part in the off-programme of the biennale Dak’Art this year. Operating from a small van, ‘Électromagnétique Mobile’ functions literally and figuratively as a radio station through which communication flows. With its nomadic character, the project focuses on meetings and encounters with a local audience as well as with the extensive network of African artists who are in town because of Dak’Art. Via the mediums of radio broadcasting and performance, the experience or status of the specific local environment is being changed – at least temporarily. In the created dialogues ‘Électromagnétique Mobile’ reflects on questions concerning on African and Western cultural identity.
