The aim of this bilingual journal is to revitalise an open and academic discourse on contemporary artistic positions and art projects related to Africa and its Diaspora. The journal strives, on the one hand, at partaking in and steering the current debate on contemporary African art, and on the other hand at formulating and instigating new critical questions, positions and discourses. SAVVY | art.contemporary.african. aims, with zeal and zest, not only at shading light on these issues but also at paving the way for a new generation, as well as a shift in the subject matter from the defensive‚ colonial, post-/ Neo-colonial focus to an offensive, self-confident and interdisciplinary cultural, fine art and art historical nucleus. A further focal point is the art scene in the German-speaking countries, where this journal is the first of its kind and where the methodologies of curating contemporary African art need to be investigated.
