I Will Draw A Map Of What You Never See

Endeavours in Rhythmanalysis

Anna Jäger, Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, Elena Agudio & Saskia Köbschall



A gathering of the echoes, memories and findings after three years of research, performances, exhibitions and conversations within THAT AROUND WHICH THE UNIVERSE REVOLVES. ON RHYTHMANALYSIS OF MEMORY, TIMES, BODIES IN SPACE. With chapters in Lagos, Düsseldorf, Harare, Hamburg and Berlin, the project and publication bring together visual artists, urbanists, writers, photographers, performers, poets, and theorists to investigate the interrelations of space and time, memory, architecture and urban planning through and beyond Henri Lefebvre’s concept of Rhythmanalysis.


The whole universe revolves around rhythm, and when we get out of rhythm, that’s when we get into trouble. - Babatunde Olatunji
