CompleXities: transformative urban ideas from the (rest of the) world

Tau Tavengwa


CompleXities is a collaboration between Cityscapes/African Centre for Cities (ACC) and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity’s Datarama. Comprising an exhibition, podcast, event series and publication, CompleXity is a three-year investigation and research project focused on: (1) exploring and presenting critical new urban ideas and practices from the Global South; (2) offering alternative ways to think about the complex nature of cities now and in the future; (3) highlighting approaches that have been effective in addressing the challenges and impacts of urbanization across the region; and (4) engaging voices of the Global South that are surprisingly still largely absent in the debates that are setting the global urban agenda. Using film, photography, sound, graphics and animation, the project engages communities, thinker-doers, academics, activists, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, and built environment experts from Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
