Rotterdam-based artist Melle Smets and sociologist Joost van Onna followed the trail of discarded Western car parts and ended up in a place called Suame Magazine in Ghana, where this scrap is processed and marketed by some 200,000 highly specialized technicians in 12,000 informal workshops. Smets and Onna turned this trail to Suame completely around and together with the local mechanics of Suame Magazine produced the first car to ever be exported from this region to the West. An expert meeting preceding the Museum Night and the exhibition of  Turtle 1: The Sequel at V2_, gathers different parties to discuss issues related to the development of this African car.
