Combining photography, film, cartography and architecture, we explore the ways in which Congolese traders and tailors are transforming the social, economic and built environment in Kampala, Uganda, while forging connections to places much further afield. Working at multiple scales, we consider the impact of the kitenge trade at the global, regional, city and neighborhood levels, with a focus on the 3x3-metre shop units that connect Congolese refugees to the global fashion industry.
