13 November-6 December 2010. This exhibition entitled Kusi na Kaskazi, which means South and North, displays the black and white images by the Swiss photographer Beat Presser. In a sort of reportage Presser explores the cultural space of the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea, which has fascinated generations for centuries, and focuses on the history, production and daily use of traditional Swahili dhow culture in Tanzania.

Furthermore, this exhibition investigates the origins of the sailing ships on the Indian Ocean and tells viewers of the life of the coastal people, of fishermen and their families, traders and the monsoon winds.
