Yvette Mutumba, a curator based in Frankfurt, and Julia Grosse, an art critic and journalist based in Berlin, talk about how Contemporary And, the international online art platform they launched three years ago, led to the invitation to curate an African Perspectives section at the 2016 Armory Show in New York.
Initially published exclusively online, Contemporary And (C&) magazine is described as “a dynamic space for the reflection on and linking together of ideas, discourse and information on contemporary art practice from diverse African perspectives.” The first print edition was launched in 2014 during the Dakar Biennale. Together, the online platform and the print issues represent and embody different ways of narrating a story without a single history or center. The magazine features interviews, reviews, features, and news by contributors based in cities around the world.
