Moleskine and lettera27 enter the epic world of Dante's Divine Comedy as the three floors of Frankfurt's Museum für Moderne Kunst are transformed into Heaven, Hell and Purgatory in a groundbreaking exhibition of contemporary African art.
As a partner of the exhibition together with non-profit foundation lettera27
, we continue our commitment to African art and culture: its curator Simon Njami
and exhibiting artist Bili Bidjocka
are the creators of Ecriture Infinie
, a travelling art project supported by Moleskine which celebrates handwriting. They are also contributors to the Moleskine Detour project
, as is South African artist Nicholas Hlobo
, also exhibiting in Frankfurt, whereas Jems Koko Bi
and Pascale Marthine Tayou
feature in AtWork
, a lettera27
project which engages communities through workshops and interactive installations in order to create points of cultural exchange, creative experimentation and the circulation of ideas.

The Divine Comedy will travel to further locations worldwide.
