Lomé + takes a simultaneously historical and poetic approach to deliver an uncompromising point of view on the Togolese capital.
The exhibition will allow visitors to explore Lomé, past, present, and future. They will dive into the multiplicity of the origins of the capital city and journey to the present with the video triptych
These imminent impossibilities by Elom 20ce, before considering the city’s future at the end of the exhibition by reflecting on the idea of a smart city. Archive footage, postcards, video, and audio archive, installations, and immersive devices will help shed light on Lomé’s urban potential and its challenges, from 1890 to 2050.
The scenography allows visitors to cross paths with guest artists such as Do Kokou, an iconic filmmaker and photographer documenting the memories and sounds of Lomé, Atchou, a rising material designer, Kokou Nouavi, who created an installation in alo fiber (the tree the city was named after), and Sénamé Koffi Agbodjinou whose installation Lomé HubCité hangs by steel ropes.
