Recontres de Bamako II

In its 25th anniversary, Rencontres de Bamako (Bamako Encounters), the biennial dedicated to African photography and video has opened in Bamako, Mali and runs until 31 January 2020. Entitled Streams of Consciousness the biennale applies the notion of the stream of consciousness as a metaphor for the flux of ideas, peoples, cultures, featuring 85 artists and collectives. Directed by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, its curatorial team also comprises Aziza Harmel, Astrid Sokona Lepoultier, and Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh; artistic advisors Akinbode Akinbiyi and Seydou Camara; and scenographer Cheick Diallo. Here's part II of our first impressions.
