„Long Distance Call – Das Operndorf Afrika im Kunstpalais“
In 2020, the Artist-in-Residence program was curated by British-Nigerian photographer Akinbode Akinbiyi. LONG DISTANCE CALL – the Opera Village Africa at Kunstpalais offers a new opportunity for the four resident-artists of 2020, to come together in Germany with a twoweek exhibition and a diverse program of events.
In a series of performances, talks, readings, concerts and film screenings involving the Erlangen audience and with the intensity of a festival, Diana Ejaita (IT/NG), Rahima Gambo (NG), Taiwo Jacob Ojudun (NG) and Anja Saleh (DE) will show works that were partly created in the Opera Village Africa and, at the same time, they invite into the public urban space of Erlangen.
The idea of mutual enrichment of cultures and the search for new ways of togetherness can thus be experienced – in artistic as well as social terms.
