About

For the first time, the rich, modernist heritage of the Eritrean capital Asmara is introduced in an exhibition,
which explores through four thematic units the city as it is today and its historical social context, architecture and special culture, and the problems and challenges resulting from its function as the capital and the increasing pressure to expand.

The exhibition is based on the book Asmara ' Africa's Secret Modernist City by Edward Denison, Guang Yu Ren and Naigzy Gebremedhin (Merrell, 2003).
