    Emeka Ogboh was born in 1977 in Enugu, Nigeria. He lives and works between Berlin and Lagos. Suffered Original is a craft beer project inspired by the food tastes and experiences of Africans living in Europe. Through the brewing and branding of the beer, it reveals certain popular beliefs and stereotypes related to the politics of difference and integration associated with their condition as expatriates. He uses the codes of commercial advertising photography to explore the experiences of African migrants in France channeling labels and clichés into creating a beer advertisement that re ects their condition. The artist presents Sufferhead Paris, combining craft beer, food (with a specially designed menu imagined by the chef Malonga), music, billboards and photographs.
