Who is wearing my T-shirt

What effect do imported second-hand clothes from different cultures have on identity? Ghanaian artist Zohra Opoku explores the changes that can take place at the individual, cultural and economic level as a result of imports of western second-hand clothes.

The results will be displayed on five billboards in central Accra. There will also be children's workshop on 18-19 December.

Opoku is an artist who lives in Accra and uses every-day materials, transforming them to give them new meaning. For more on her work see her website.

The event is sponsored by the Alliance Française and the Goethe Institut in Accra.
