The work of Sissel Tolaas on the smellscapes of Cape Town both may inspire us in thinking about Cape Town, but they are certainly an important point of reference for our upcoming project on the smellscapes of Istanbul this summer.
Public Arts Festival
6-10 March 2012
presented by The Africa Centre
Public art has always been part of who we are on this continent and in this country. The interconnectedness of the African “us” has often been impeded however, throwing people apart and far away from each other, creating a physical and psychic separation. Infecting the City is a small attempt at igniting this interconnectedness through artistic expression, making public space public.
