Starting from Nigeria, Diminished Capacity intends to analyze a historical transaction moment with the ambition to rewrite history, providing unpublished interpretations. The project, curated by Camilla Boemio with the works of architect Ola-Dele Kuku, reflects on conflict as a driving mechanism in our world.

Throughout his practice, Ola-Dele Kuku has consistently reshaped representation in a timely challenge. Working with drawing, installation, and objects, he has revisited the mainstays of architectural applications of manipulative strategies and representational methods – plan, elevation, section – to inject unsettling slippages into their rigorous formalism. This new body of work fully embraces an analytical socio-philosophical slant that confronts complex issues such as resource depletion and their management, migration, micro and macro global changes, and the diminished capacity of countries amplified by multiple applications of manipulative strategies.
