« A daring blend between tradition and modernity »

In collaboration with "Afrique in Visu", a platform created by curator Jeanne Mercier, the Institute of Islamic Cultures presents an exhibition about the power of myths and supersitions on the African continent. How can we believe in something we have never seen? Sixteen photographers and videographers have tried to answer this complex question. Going against stereotypes, the artists adopt an offbeat, humorous tone, bordering on the documentary. Between reality and fiction, we are plunged into a dreamlike universe where different beliefs seem to communicate with each other. The voodoo cult and the memory of slavery mix to give birth to traditional rites that have become digital... And if the mysteries of the cults frighten you, you can also visit the exhibition virtually via the website of the Institute of Islamic Cultures!
