Welcome to edition 0 of SAVVY|art.contemporary.african. with the title “Where do we go from here?” This journal heralds a new wave of critical writing focusing on art with a relation to Africa and its Diaspora.

“Where do we go from here?” features, amongst others, articles on Adel Abdessemed, Wangechi Mutu, Soavina Ramaroson, Antonio Ole or Bisi Silva.
