Douala, the economic and cultural capital of Cameroon, is the context in which doual'art, a research center of urban practices, has been operating for more than 16 years. The group fosters cultural projects and commissions site-specific art interventions, using art and culture to develop processes of urban change. The book brings together cross-disciplinary analyses of Douala that seek to go beyond predictable and prejudicial views about African towns, and, in the publisher's words, Douala becomes a thrilling case study in which artistic practices engage and affect the cityscape.
