Kosmopolis 15. The Afropolitan Condition

Dialogue with Taiye Selasi and Xavier Aldekoa

African reality is richer, more complex and creative than might be gleaned from the media. A new generation of writers and journalists is changing our perception of a continent with over a thousand millions inhabitants and almost two thousand languages. At K15, Taiye Selasi, an emerging star of literature and the creator of the concept of Afropolitanism, talks to Xavier Aldekoa, La Vanguardia correspondent in Africa, about ideas, works and projects that are fighting for a more open, lucid, hopeful vision of a continent that is decisive in the 21st century.

Participants: Taiye Selasi, Xavier Aldekoa
