African Arts are in the spotlight!
The arts of the African continent tell some remarkable stories. To discover some of the great kingdoms of Africa, check our playlist below! And if you prefer contemporary art, no problem: our playlist includes some renowned artists such as Romuald Hazoumè, Zanele Muholi and Chéri Samba.

Visual activist, Zanele Muholi, uses photography and film to document and explore issues of race and representation and to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community in South Africa and beyond. Here they talk about how the power of images can show LGBTQIA+ people of South Africa, and QTIPOC people worldwide, that they are not alone. Watch as they introduce us to four key bodies of work and the ideas behind them.
