With Director and Founder, Afriart Gallery, Kampala Daudi Karungi, Owner, Gazelli Art House, Baku/London Mila Askarova, Assistant Professor of Performance Studies and Theory and The Africa Institute, Sharjah Surafel Wondimu Abebe. Moderated by Dr. Christianna Bonin.

Both Kampala and Baku had dynamic art scenes between the 1960s and 1980s. Linking these two cities—and more generally, East Europe and East Africa—are the many art students and intellectuals who worked across these regions, absorbing and translating images, objects, and sounds from one context to another. This conversation brings these historical and present-day art worlds into focus, with experts who can speak to the challenges and opportunities of recovering lost histories and working in today’s global art market.
