Dak'Art 2010, Biennale de l'Art Africain Contemporain

That there is a relation between political powers and exhibition spaces is old news. However, Dak’Art 2010, the biennial of contemporary African art which has taken place in Dakar, Senegal since 1992, once again audaciously exploited this relationship to an uncomfortable degree.

Here are some highlights from our Berlin correspondent.

Hilma af Klint's paintings, now on show in Arnhem, demonstrate abstraction even before Kandinsky's and Mondrian's works did. In retrospect, should we revisit our understanding of the early development of modern art?
