it and the
and and and the st hello and welcome make everyone next the benign for out encounter is encountered an ink here is the head curator of papillotomy minute meeting confined in Dortmund and she runs an amazing program there um I was there last time for exhibition and regionalism and today she's been introduced as to half of futurism and the exhibition of tank where Malcolm for encounter few things it's amazing to be here and I hope you can hear me and the technology is working so I'm going to briefly introduce you to after attack and the future of reinvention it's sermon
exhibition that is currently on view at the in the way area so that's it in the until late of
April and terms the it's just that it's a lot of gold in the exhibition so
on what's exhibition about the exhibition attack and the future of reinvention puts afro futurism in dialog with alternative technological solutions and imaginations that speculative narratives unfolding in the art works on display and will talk about that later confronted with actual inventions from makers scenes and different African countries this creates a double shift of perspective of the art works projects a double shift of this uh sorry what the art works project decided the African and does boric science fiction visions the real devices appear as evidence of a technological development that is already underway from the exhibition thus presents Africa as a continent of technological innovation and I will explain to you later on why this is
so why we do this this is just an
overview of some the artists in the exhibition 20 artists and 12 tech projects in the exhibition they are presented together and lots explain later on the How come that this is so and before I talk about the exhibition and go with it a bit more deeply into the into the contents and I want to tell you a little bit more about the research I did that before doing this exhibition and so the research that was
really crucial for developing this project so some in 2014 with my colleague on the back not was designed professor at the the University of Applied Arts and Sciences and full book and to who has been researching a lot in the Baker spaces and magazines and so on we travel to 3 countries offer that the continent so we went to Kenya on the at the eastern coasts we went to South Africa on the southern coast and we went to Nigeria and in order to research and what people no we're doing with technology and this was the 1st local
which honor developed I think it's a really beautiful old and obviously shows you uh the silhouette uh the continents around with the wheel which is very important a satellite dish a helicopter rotor told so camera flashlights and also something like a cable that looks like than elephants 12
so when we started we have certain ideas and uh uh wishes we wanted to look at the use of the adaptation and the reinvention or invention of technologies new technologies in those 3 African countries and it was very important and interesting because in 2
thousand and 14 and before going there we also looked to read a lot of stuff on the internet uh for example those those this interesting article by Ethan Zuckerman Africans hackers of today's world class tech innovators which was published in wired for example and then
there was a very and I'm just pointing you to these articles that in case you're interested in looking at who was writing about the technology in Africa and white African was actually Eric from global be but and he's running uh this blog away you can find lots of really interesting uh entries
from this is a very interesting and important guy in the cocoa for he is part of a very big family from Nigeria and and uh he he emigrated to the US is living in New York City and he is 1 of the people who started the Maker Faire Africa and project and he he also ran the maker for Africa and logos in 2012 so and his of online project is quantum book to chronicle so you might want to check out what he's writing this is
just a really beautiful but poster of the 2012 and make of Africa in Lagos which gave us a lot of ideas actually where to start research and a way to
way to look at and say OK that's another big picture rather funny article article I want to become an internet billionaire moved to Africa from 2 thousand 11 already and the Mac actually shows you the project at an undersea cables in May 2013 and I'm not going to read
you all of this just to tell you we we wrote a kind of FAQ before we went and because we wanted to make very clear what we were interested in and what not and and uh just to give you an idea we at we were interested in people doing strange things with technology and getting electricity software those who were not contending themselves with corporate solution East designed for the global north and into out of this uh and dissatisfaction are starting to that to develop their own solutions so that's what we were looking for the to was
just the 1st my 1st impression of my warping and the things on the
people we met with quite amazing for example here in some and will be in Kenya we met so this error cost 1 white African and cool hacks at that time been developing the first one internet so that could work without electricity on without constant power connection which is something very important in Africa because the that in some countries in let's say in many countries that constant power failures and many people of course use the power generators and which consume a lot of gasoline and in order to become independent of of those polar caps and so this with this little machine I mean with with the laptop like this it's not not problem because it can kind of survive to always 3 hours without electricity but uh the service for Internet connectivity can't and so that's why they developed this machine in which has a built in battery miss the somebody
else I met in South Africa on them is has developed this project rollerball hand uh and the guy who invented and who invented the project is Richard from last nite from South Africa you can see in the in the yellow T-shirt and he actually used to work as a carpenter and at some point in 2011 also he had a serious accident he kind of cut off the half of his hand and so balloon him when he went to the hospital and so you know had to face of uh medical treatment she suddenly realize that he basically you could not pay for i for an artificial limb artificial hand so he decided to make 1 for himself and at that time the 3 D printing was just up on the rise and and uh he invented the solution for himself but then in the process of making this fully mechanical Nolde non-electrical hand only that which is fully functional he realize that the solution could not only maybe work for him but also for other and so that's when he decided
to the put the files online and so they accessible for anybody who has a 3 D printer basic and and they can be adapted to to the individual needs this green 1 is the hands that we printed out for the exhibition in in document OK the flying don't find
donkey challenge of contest was also quite popular at the time I think they kind of distance discontinued its because of several bomb attacks and they could not follow up on this and but the idea basically our uh when you don't have the infrastructure roads and stuff so why not you know use transport drones another very interesting
projects and it is on a project that was presented at the maker Faire Africa labels in 2012 that it's a project by 4 schoolgirls who built a generator from that's a power generator which is not running on gasoline but which is running on you read um and apparently you can introduce 6 hours of electricity with 1 liter of hearing and they were about to install it into the school system so
this just been do give you some ideas that resulted from this research trip and very often had the feeling OK there is a serious lack of infrastructure a serious lack of material in all infrastructure there's no war and not to the cash machine at every street corner uh maybe not roles that are kind of good enough to to of them to be used so on on everyday basis and so there's really a serious lack of physical infrastructure and and what I noticed is that it's not about catching up but somehow it's about jumping over right it's about going directly to the next level and so going directly wireless mom and uh I guess some of you know that so many of you should you might know that and cell was introduced very early on it's a it's a and way of paying with your mobile phone without the need of having a bank account and and of course the usage of mobile telephone he was very is very widespread in Africa and uh so the a lot of a lot of ideas so suddenly is somehow were became very um view violence so to speak and uh out of this idea of jumping to the next level for the project that it meant that in you know what what I had seen in those 3 countries and someone did not correspond to what you usually see in the media television or in the newspaper you always read about this next time and there's poverty there's hunger corroboree regimes and so on it's suddenly all exists definitely but some there's also something else now when we had the opening of the exhibition I said this normality in Africa you know and and so that's why it so we decided to present Africa as the continent of technological innovation it's a it's a different way of sort of a different kind of extreme it
is so you might not you might wonder how does after for tourism come into the game for a long time I did not know what to do with these findings signal and I was very unsure how to develop the whole project further and then I started talking to a colleague of mine the for some allow them and to the because some I had the feeling that I'm missing a kind of narrative OK this idea of jumping to the next level it's a nice idea but some of them and the idea of presenting Africa as a continent of different technological innovation is also quite interesting but somehow there was a lack of narrative so and uh from young C and he suggested to look at a 4 foot so is effort futurism half food arisen was clearly not something that comes from Africa interestingly but it's a kind a science fiction narrative that some started that developed in the 19 let's say 19 fifties in the US so it's Afro-American uh the culture um and 1 of the protagonists is actually some wrong just musician um cool always claimed to be from the planets sub and not from the Canada but from Saturn and as you can see he he loved dressing up like like forall so those tool reference is very very important in the reference to the ancient Egypt soul that's a high culture in Africa and at the same time the reference to space to order space and these are 2 very important references for half full tourism because of and you will find these references in our anomaly In many let's say the science fiction stories narratives and soul when you're being denied your own place in the present time and after tourism has be looking for alternatives spaces and also times so that's why space is an alternative place and and also let's say the moving into the future all into the very far away past is is an option all became important enough of witches and it true so maybe you have
wondered why we have such a very strange Design some of them on the right
hand side of the building we are located in it's the Doppler you want the former Union breweries and it has this beautiful logo on top of the rules which obviously stands for union dispute brands but uh what designers actually founders parallel in in some neurons that I had to handle to let's say so that's why we actually develop
this this design so let me tell you a little bit about the exhibition
so and John from shots and experimental documentary film The last angel of history examines the relationships between Pan-African culture science-fiction e intergalactic travel and rapidly developing computer technology the short film from
notes from the Ghanaian director of France's the doll looks at the real history of a plan the space program in Zambia of the 19 sixties the time at which pollute political Utopia's encounter technological progress and this is actually the story of a 17 year old girl or in Zambia who are supposed to be sent to the moon
In P. K. 1 T handouts photographs show futuristic architectures in the Angolan capital of Luanda the artist and reinterprets those post colonial buildings um in because 13 until proof of the 1st African journey to the sun combine it is unknown
and in the Sun Ra repatriation project has the goal of bringing some back to his actual planet of origin subtle and some wrong who died in 1993 was adjusted musician he claimed to originate from the planet Saturn and represented the philosophy of the Astra black was coming which confirmed his extraterrestrial origin so in this video of and she actually interviews a lot of scientists uh some of them involved in the CET program search for extraterrestrial intelligence and how to prove is there a way to prove that sunrise really returned to his planet of origin between her and she actually manages to prove it obviously taking the work
of the cosmic jazz musician around again as a starting point the speculative narrative of soda jerk examines the connection between science fiction and the and Social Policy in the black Atlantic music culture in the exhibition are from black that Astra black is presented as a tool channel video installation with 4 episodes alternate alternating between the 2 screens and so
this was the square of this was a selection of projects that deal with outer space of space travel and then we also have a lot of projects that deal with the CD with a deep sea with the Atlantic um and so I'm going to present you 2 or 3 of the most soul and Alexia the legendary Detroit technology would affects arms and developed imaginary worlds inspired by futurism in many concept albums In the releases speccy on is also the name of a legendary city beneath the sea this effortful to mystic offer fruitful to rest Atlanta's is populated by the descendants of pregnant women that were taken as slaves from various countries of Africa and thrown overboard and murdered during the crossing of the Atlantic according to the legend their unborn children and their unborn children survived and the warm and developed the ability to brief and live on the water they found an unknown underwater civilization that was in possession of utopian technologies and the South
Africa-based artist habitat is deals with the C is a stall houseful pain lost stories and memories in the area of colonialism the and deep down title that's work we see years while it also contains the deep it also contains the global infrastructure of our present-day telecommunications within it so she really follows she actually overlays she finds a parallel between the undersea in the undersea telecommunication cables and the roots of this the slave ships that have traveled from western Africa to the so-called new world MIT the filmmaker
Simon but as you want but my own in this film that Xia which you can also see tonight only takes up the myth of the same name in order to use the methods of science fiction to tell of the images circulated in media today and about a discussion of the refugee crisis another film
that you can also see it tonight so tonight as a as a video of a program of 3 films in which people in the end of the show you a slide and this is actually a naked reality and by John Shelby chordal it's not for futurist science fiction film located 150 years in the future the cities of Africa have grown together to form a gigantic dystopian metropolis in the film of the Cameroonian filmmaker the protagonist when the term leaves the house 1 morning not knowing that have 1st prior to the ancestors has initiated her journey to dim see a world a world 1 cannot see the Louis Henderson that's the
3rd film you can see tonight but some let the way on letters of this year is a film as say that uses documentary methods to tell of Spiritism and technology and present-day gone the narrative of the film revolves around a mysterious practice known as cycle Internet scans fraudulent Marcel e-mails that is enriched with voodoo magic the
In Montreal some comments is a Belgian beninese photographer comments on on environmental destruction in various regions of Africa minus photographic work the prophesy In his images he stages fantastic entities that has designed together with the designer to see from the car in a elliptic landscapes we're showing for these pictures here I only show you 1 and this is obviously dealing with the computer try sh you yeah some slowly coming to an end
some of the tech projects I told you in the beginning we have 12 tech projects and exhibitions and they come a very wide variety of areas from I already told you about bleak from Kenya which is an Internet server that also ensures access to the internet to even without stable colour supply and from Kenya as a cash free method of paying of payment that functions via mobile telephone for which 1 receives no we cry no bank account and there's a project called up the from Germany and mean the people who develop that they're working in Germany and to and in Africa and local blocking means as much as well are you Bitsey innovative and addressed act that reliably land the also finds locations in areas without an existing edges system another important area is that of health and medicine they already I told you I showed you roll Rwandan provides prostheses fingers hands and legs but for printing out oneself or that the 3 D printer at a fraction of the price of conventional medical prostheses gifted mom an act that provides expecting models with useful information and contributes to sexual education yeah shall vary from 1 year interior combat hunger through innovative use of the expiration dates of food products this could also be quite interesting for here the the inventor of just like plenty more you want to avoid um food waste in this and then there's a project called con pants that helps with medical diagnoses in areas with low populations and in some creates a direct connection with medical specialists To iconoscope from Kenya as a completely functional microscope from the the 3 printers and uh messianic happen that's the last image I
would like to show you should leaking out of and this is Henry Henry near Cologne now from uh 1 and he built and it's a kind of so let me ask which can be used for which people can use for recharging them all phones and mobile devices and Henry he also came to 0 . 1 2 we had a 1 week festival and we invent invited several of the mentors and terms and Henley told me because he builds these kiosks and he kind of friends them out to people so people can mend them and they can make money on a recharging telephones and he told me and all I'm not employing young man I'm especially and and I really want to work with a young women especially at young mothers because they of and they feel very responsible so he's he's the predominantly employing young mothers and to learn these kiosks the so if you're interested in more
stuff there's a travel blog obviously there's a video about the exhibition and there have been some very
interesting and very interesting of press
covering coverage and the film screening I would like to point you to open this every nite from tonight at 10 o'clock in the video launch it's those 3 films and in order to thank you
for your attention and and you fall of questions and answers obviously thank you and thanks a lot and I'm just 1 remarkably alliances in the act play area over there and also for those of you interested in a lot of some rather how those are freely available and of compared to that that that that it would be a very effective thing to do after goods is allowed to be what if
