Recalling the Future: Art in Contemporary Africa is a 48-minute introduction to practicing artists and current philosophies about the production of art in contemporary Africa. Filmed during DakArt 1998, the video gives primacy of voice to selected artists and a few critics, such as Okwui Enwezor (Artistic Director of 1997 Johannesburg Biennale) and Iba Diadji Ndiaye, and a few Biennale board members, Ri Sagna, General Secretary of the Biennale and Ousmane Huchard, Chairman of the Board of DakArt 1998.
