In this issue, Aperture takes a detailed look at the dynamic spaces that have shaped conversations about photography in Africa for the last twenty-five years — the biennials, experimental art spaces, and educational workshops in which artists and audiences interact with photography.
Platform Africa presents a new generation of artists, and is produced in collaboration with guest editors Bisi Silva, founder and artistic director of the Centre for Contemporary Art in Lagos, Nigeria; John Fleetwood, director of the South Africa–based platform Photo and former head of the Market Photo Workshop in Johannesburg; and Aïcha Diallo, associate editor of Contemporary And.
