This exhibition explores the impact of the philosopher Ramon Llull (1232-1316) on the arts, literature, science and technology. This controversial man, admired and scorned by some of the most enlightened minds in European culture, has acquired a new importance in the current debate on the ways knowledge is shared with others. A topical figure today, he was also one of the leading lights in the intellectual circles of the late 13th century, in which Arab, Jewish and Christian philosophers and scientists alike participated.
The exhibition showcases the work of over 120 African artists and creators and illustrates how design fuels economic and political changes. "Making Africa" speaks, from Africa, of a new continent “under construction” and places emphasis on its possibilities over its problems.
