what's it all about?

A global exploration of what has caused and fuelled the recent international growth of the African aesthetic.

tell me more (don't worry, no spoilers)

Africa is generally considered the ‘birthplace of humanity’, but could it also be the birthplace of style? Africans and their cultures are inspiring the aesthetic world today more than ever.

From high fashion runways to the meccas of visual art, there is an undeniable presence of African influence and a growing number of African trendsetters.

Bangaologia sets out to explore the raison d´être behind the recent growth of the African aesthetic, taking a voyage that spans from Angola to the US and Europe to discover how ‘banga’ has been inspiring so many in and out of Africa, and how it is bringing the world closer to the Motherland of style.
