Antoni Folkers: Modern Architecture in Africa

Talk, in English, Shaughnessy House, 14 July 2016, 6pm

Antoni Folkers discusses a collection related to modern architecture in Africa that was recently acquired by the CCA. His account traces the activity of three travellers involved in building the collection: Georg Lippsmeier in the 1950s, Coen Beeker in the 1960s, and Kiran Mukerji in the 1970s.

An architect and urban designer, Folkers is the author of Modern Architecture in Africa (SUN, 2009). He is a cofounder of the non-profit groups ArchiAfrika and African Architecture Matters.
