Sunday Empirical Nonsense Daily: BOLERO in Addis Abeba
Like every Sunday until the end of July 2021, today’s issue of the Empirical Nonsense Daily (END) is dedicated to the newspaper art project BOLERO. We revisit the first international exhibition that took place in 2010 at the Laphto Complex of the Old Airport in Addid Abeba, Ethiopia. The curator of this exhibition was Leo Kosm (Lefort) and the participating, Ethiopian artists were Behailu Bezabih, Bekele Mekonnen, Eshetu Tiruneh, Bisrat Shibabaw and Nuru Abegaz. The invitation consisted of the cover of De Standaard that was also used for the so-called 0-edition in Belgium. From now on every new issue of the exhibition would use the newspaper cover of the last country the project was shown as its invite.
