Jochen Becker speaks of the long-standing relationship between China and Africa, which he refers to as Chinafrica, challenging the preconceived notion that the trade links between China and Africa are a new phenomenon. As artistic examples for a contemporary notion of Chinafrica, he discusses the work of Sammy Baloji, Elke Marhöfer, Paolo Woods, and Michael MacGarry.
