Abstract / Summary
This paper was presented at the Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford University and, following, at the Fowler Museum, UCLA, internationally highly-regarded institutions of African art research. ‘Vernacular, Transitional and Modern Architecture in East Africa’ evinces and interprets a body of photographic recording spanning 1990 to 2005. In concert with analyses of East African architectural forms, the paper discusses methodologies of photographic recording, a discussion informed by photographers from Africa, including David Goldblatt and Guy Tillim, and Europe, such as Bernd and Hilla Becher’s observations of industrial architecture. The paper comprises a ‘Powerpoint’ presentation of images and a supporting text that was delivered as a commentary., The details of the colloquium and conference are as follows:, 'Vernacular, Transitional and Modern Architecture in East Africa': Tatu, East African Visual Traditions, Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford (2010): A one-day colloquium, the third meeting in an occasional series founded and organised by a loose association of researchers with interests in the visual traditions of Eastern Africa (Paper and Powerpoint presentation)., 'Vernacular, Transitional and Modern Architecture in East Africa: A selection of Photographic Encounters and Assessments,’ Panel 8: Public Art, Civic Monuments, and Architectural Statements.
