Paris, once the capital of a colonial world power, has now become one of the largest African enclaves in Europe. As a city compressed spatially and temporally and often the centre of discussion, Paris is ideal for investigating the cultural processes of interaction and mixing which constitute the relationship between the North and South. The exhibition Black Paris spanned the period from the beginning of the 20th century to the present and combined documentary and art-historical views.
