Tracking down clandestine oil refineries in Nigeria

As the leading African oil producer, Nigeria exports an average of 2 million barrels of crude per day, which represents 90% of the country's export revenues.

This illegal exploitation also leads to air pollution responsible for premature mortality for the inhabitants of the region.

A unique exhibition designed as a "dialogue" between works by Picasso and African objects that influenced him.
