Diaspora Memory Place

December 2008 -

A presentation and an in-depth analysis of three African diaspora artists of our time: David Hammons, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons and Pamela Z.


Originally conceived for Dak’art - the biennial of contemporary African art - the three site-specific projects profiled in Diaspora Memory Place strive to communicate notions of racial stereotyping, memory, language, and a shared past. The book contains a series of essays by leading scholars, artists and critics, including Okwui Enwezor.
