Re-Painting the Red of Rex Akinruntan, Kojo Apori, Ralitsa Diana Debrah und Charlie Michaels was an intervention in urban space with critical views at the omnipresent brandings of international companies in Ghana. The installation in the exhibition Kumasi Crossroads - global kiosk affairs documented the work.
