"Tanzania Unlimited, Ltd." is a collection of photos showcasing business in Africa. It focuses on Tanzania's economy, which has grown due to increased exports and other international trade. Though new industries are a boone to the nation's economy, participation in the global market also creates cultural tension. International companies often impose foreign social codes and structures onto Tanzanian society, creating a culture clash in the business arena. This tension, along with the country's ethnic diversity and growing local economy, sets the stage for Mathilde Jansen's documentary-style, collage, and set-up photography.
Many contemporary women artists use their body to make a political statement. Artist Ingrid Mwangi is one of them, creating work that is innovative, visually striking and often shocking. She spent the first 15 years of her life in Kenya and has been living in Germany ever since. Through photography, performance, sound, installation and video, she's created a "body of work" that questions both social and political conventions. Mwangi writes: My body is the only thing that I own... I react, interpret and question the clichés and stereotypes with which I am faced... I use art to awaken consciences.
