African Mobilities: Olalekan Jeyifous Public Lecture

At a time when international borders are being violently redrawn, maintained and policed, and domestic territories are increasingly implicated with accelerated geo-political re-alignments and capitalist circuits of extraction, join artist, Olalekan Jeyifous, as he explores how architecture responds to the complexity of African mobilities—beyond the figure of the refugee. African cities are reconsidered as sites of innovation, rapid transformations, new architectural typologies, infrastructures and technologies.

In conversation with Olalekan Jeyifous will be writer and activist, OluTimehin Adegbeye, and the Editor of The Republic, Wale Lawal.

The event is part of a collaborative exhibition between Architekturmuseum der TU München and the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and is curated by Dr. Mpho Matsipa (Wits City Institute). This initiative is funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation. Additional support comes from the Goethe-Institut.

It is a non-ticketed event, and open to all members of the public
