Summary Connecting Afro Futures: Fashion x Hair x Design' is published in connection with the eponymous exhibition at the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin. The catalog takes up the positions presented in it from the two project hubs in Dakar and Kampala and expands on them with discursive and visual contributions such as essays, interviews, photo spreads, and illustrations. Fashion and hair in the African context as well as the question of Afro Futures that is posed in the title of the project are discussed and staged visually not so much from an ethnological perspective as from a decolonialized perspective on global developments in design.
