INVISIBLE BORDERS bei SAVVY Contemporary

Presentation und offene Diskussionsrunde: INVISIBLE BORDERS

Invisible Borders Trans-African Photographic Initiative was founded in 2009, in a bid to contribute through art and photography to the patching of numerous gaps and misconceptions posed by frontiers within the 54 countries of Africa. It is an artists-led initiative which in itself is a product of the Invisible Borders Road Trip Photography Project organised and executed annually by as many as 10 Nigerian photographers. The project is trans-African in its orientation, and sees the participating artists collectively taking road trips across Africa to explore and participate in various photographic events, festival and exhibitions while engaging on a daily basis with the environment and the people encountered. The emphasis is primarily on the collective journey of the participating artists who, during their momentary stops in capital cities, create photographic works that often reflect their individual approach to engaging with local artists, art practitioners and the inhabitants. They also collaborate intensively with colleagues from each of the countries involved. Underpinning the project are several major aims:

• To tell Africa’s stories, by Africans, through photography and inspiring artistic interventions.
• Encourage exposure of upcoming African photographers towards experiencing art and photography as practiced in other parts of the continent.
• Establish a platform of cultural network that encourages and embraces trans-African
artistic relationships within the continent.
• Contribute towards the socio-political discourse shaping Africa of the 21st Century.
