Afropolis: City, media, art is a gigantic portmanteau of a book; halfway between those finely tooled leather trunks that colonial administrators packed before leaving for their postings, and those giant nylon woven bags - red, blue and white plaid, made in China - in which African street traders transport their wares. Part exhibition catalogue, part theoretical text, part artistic exploration, the book addresses the questions of the African city, ranging across the continent from north to south, east to west.
