Four years of discussions, artistic residencies, exhibitions and collaborations between Cameroonian and European artists in the framework of the project “Present Perfect” have led to a series of contemporary art magazines. Three magazines to be launched between Nov. 2012 and 2013 reflect on a specific South-North relationship: the past and the present of cultural import and export of Cameroon with the so-called West. DiARTgonale, a Cameroonian artist journal hosts this series. Each edition is headed by co-productions of Cameroonian and Dutch / German / Belgium artists and explores a specific subject matter in depth. The bilingual journals (FR/EN) are distributed as printed matter throughout Cameroon and Europe and as digital download as well as tablet application on the internet subsequently throughout 2012 and 2013.

The first publication “JAMAN” will be launched in November 2012.

The long-term project “Present Perfect” explores phenomena of cultural import and export in case-studies (new productions) with the tools of contemporary art. A continuous conversation with art professionals from Cameroon determined the geographical horizon of this project. Since 2009 a range of research travels, residencies, talks, events and exhibitions in out of Cameroon have organically shaped the project.
