Kader Attia talks with exhibition maker and cultural producer Koyo Kouoh about his exhibition Repair. 5 Acts. Artist and curator are "in an open end conversation over the past few years that revolve around the archeology of modernity in search of African aesthetic and systemic forms that flew into the 'modernist project' without any credit or recognition."
(Quotation: Koyo Kouoh)
