Elizabeth Giorgis focuses on the progressive loss of city archives in Addis Ababa due to the rapid modernisation of the city and questions the place and role of young artists in this transformation. She examines the effects that these transformations have on the local communities and how artists’ works can draw attention to these changes. She presents and discusses the work of artists Michael Tesfaye, Mihret Kebede, and Berhanu Ashagrie Deribew.
