The two-year, three-city exhibition and research project Digital
Imaginaries brought together artists, makers, architects, and
social scientists to examine digital futures on the African
continent. This book presents resulting artistic and scholarly
productions alongside additional works.


The contributions in this volume deal with diverse digital
phenomena: From the continued impact of toxic histories and the
conflict-ridden extraction of minerals critical to the digital
economy to video games, experimental architecture, the
reappropriation of smart city and innovation practices, the
commoning of resources, attempts to digitize voter trust, calls
for digital resistance and decolonial healing, the relationships
between humans and technics, utopia and dystopia, and the limits
of reason. The contributions articulate imaginaries and agendas
capable of staving off the domination of market interests, state
surveillance, and postcolonial hegemonies. Starting from
positions on the African continent and in the African diaspora,
the works collated here contribute to the global struggle for
more diverse and inclusive digital futures.
