Speaker: Aaron Kohn, Director, Museum of African Design, Johannesburg

Design is growing in the interest of museums and the general conscious, but it has always shared a common interest with literature and photography. The code of design is conveyed through photography and writing, yoked to and held captive by two-dimensional mediums that have changed very little in the past millennia And yet, a trend is developing to read the design of contemporary Africa through photographs. The Museum of African Design (“MOAD”) in Johannesburg, South Africa and other museums have relied on photography to explore design genres and understand better the design ecosystems around the continent. Seydou Keita, Malick Sidibé, and many of the stars that defined contemporary African arts are now being re-read through the lens of design; helping to shift the relationship between arts and design. This presentation will be led by Aaron Kohn, director of the Museum of African Design in Johannesburg.
