The Centre Soleil d’Afrique presents the exhibition “Africa in Yougouyougou mode” by Fatim Diarra.
The photographer questions the absurdity of large flows of second-hand goods, especially the so-called “yougouyougou” or “Goodbye France”, from the Western world in relation to the cotton producing status of the country.
She wants to draw public attention to this phenomenon of invasion of these clothes on the stalls of local markets, in the streets and public places which hampers the development of the local economy. Fatim Diarra recalls the importance of producing and consuming local textiles in order to prevent the exploitation of materials and the skills they require from disappearing.
