This book explores the history of a young festival that has revisited a long century of AfroFictional interventions: The BIGSAS Festival of African (-Diasporic) Literatures 2011-2013 in Bayreuth. AfroFiction is a Black space where fictional word-art meets photography, painting, installation, music and film.
This book comprises some of the most vibrant voices of writers, musicians and artists from the African continent and its diasporas.
