'Young Architects from Germany' presents fourteen projects by young architects from Germany that have been completed abroad mainly since 2004. The selected examples from construction, interior design, urban design and landscape architecture show how these architects approach working in foreign environments, how they redefine and add to existing buildings, and how they create new ones under unusual conditions. They come up with sensitive solutions for challenges in architecture today, always with an eye on the future, sustainability, and new technologies.

Contrary to today’s global media interest in the spectacular and the star, this exhibition presents innovative architectural projects that confidently and quietly take a pragmatic approach, concentrating entirely on the locations for which they were created.

An exhibition by the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations e. V. (ifa), Stuttgart, in cooperation with the Federal Chamber of German Architects e. V. (BAK), Berlin, Media partner: Deutsche Welle (DW).

Per Anders Pettersson at MOAD Museum of African Design

In 2014 South Africa celebrates 20 years of Democracy since the ending of Apartheid.

In Spring 1994 Per Anders Pettersson arrived in South Africa to cover the country’s first democratic elections. Nelson Mandela was to become its first black president; he had been free for four years and had toured the world like a rock star. The election itself was of immense significance: from the ashes of a repressive, segregated and racist state a multi-racial nation miraculously emerged, one of the greatest success stories of the African continent. And so began his love affair with South Africa. Over two decades he explored the country, the ‘Rainbow Nation’, questioning the complex realities of daily life.

For South Africa, Democracy was a hard won freedom that brought both rewards and new struggles: a soaring violent crime rate, disease, poverty and massive unemployment. Yet, South Africa’s policies reaped astonishing wealth for a new black elite, and saw the rapid emergence of a black middle class. The energy with which these so-called ‘black diamonds’ embraced capitalism was one of the most striking features of the transition. Their success also fostered a frenzied aspirational spirit amongst the poorer urban classes. However, during the second decade greed and disillusion began to smother this hope and aspiration. This is now the predominant theme in South African life.

Swedish born, Per-Anders Pettersson is an award winning photographer – World Press Photo, PDN, POY, NPPA, CARE, CHIPP, Unicef Photo of the Year, American Photography, Commarts. He has exhibited
several times at Visa Pour L’mage, Perpignan and at other festivals and galleries around the world. His last major exhibition was ‘Amazon’, a two-person show with Sebastiao Salgado, held at Somerset House, London, in November/December 2011 and later in Dublin.

'Portrait of a Nation' includes the last photographic portrait of Nelson Mandela of which a signed limited edition was sold for a record R2 million in December 2013 and donated to charity. Mercedes-Benz South Africa as co-sponsor will be showcasing Nelson Mandela’s red Mercedes-Benz 500 SE built by the employees of MBSA’s East London Plant, and the brand new life-sized C-Class made of wire and beads.

Niall Bingham at MOAD Museum of African Design

Niall Bingham's collaborative exhbition, 'Mirror Image', opens the new MOAD basement exhibition space.

Often working collaboratively with fellow artists, Niall's exploration in various media challenges the notion of authorship in artistic production; and map the artistic community with which he associates.  He strategically acknowledges his collaborations in manifestos and foregrounds the role of process in his work.

His use of self-portraiture to image his various personas can be seen as a response toI am Niall, a documentary that catalogues a moment in time, serving as a point of departure for this iteration.
