Curator : Professor Awam Amkpa New York University

The exhibition, sponsored by Africa.Cont , explores the experience of African immigrants in Europe and offers new perspectives and frameworks of analysis in relation to its presence in Europe.

Through photography, the exhibition presents several stories of African migrants since its uncertain voyage from Africa to Europe, to multiple forms of engagement and building community ties in Europe.

With nearly 100 works that focus on communities in Italy, France and Spain, the exhibition will also give particular importance to some examples in Portugal, where the curator has established contacts with several photographers and associations working in geographical areas marked by the African presence.
