Call for Participation for 2014 Invisible Borders Road Trip Lagos-Sarajevo
Note, that the applications are open for the next Invisible Borders Road Trip from Lagos to Sarajevo. Sounds pretty interesting, if you have the time.
ANNOUNCING! Call for Participation for the 5TH EDITION of the INVISIBLE BORDERS ROAD TRIP from LAGOS to SARAJEVO 2014 // Application Deadline 10 November 2013
In 2014, the Invisible Borders Trans-African Photographers Organization will embark on the 5th edition of their Road Trip Project. This trip will be the ﬁrst Trans-Continental Road Trip of the collective and will be from Lagos (Nigeria) to Sarajevo (Bosnia) through 21 countries in Africa and Europe notably Nigeria, Republic of Benin, Togo, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Senegal, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Morocco, Spain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and eventually Bosnia.
During the last four editions of the Road Trip the group has explored African countries from the West to the East and Central Africa. The impressions of the last four years have given rise to reﬂections and subsequent evolution of questions surrounding the complexness of borders. This year’s road trip is therefore an attempt to approach the core of what necessitates borders: Movement.
The road trip project is an attempt to draw a tangible line of connection across chosen geographic locations in order to transcend the limitations proposed by the existing demarcating lines.
The road trip will assemble artists from divers part of the African continent whose previous works are well rooted in the reality of the African continent. It will be made up of photographers, writers, video artists, art historians and performance artists. There will be ten participants in a whole. The journey will last 151 days (22 weeks) from the 2nd of June – 31st of October 2014. They will make stops of about ﬁve to seven days in major cities of these 21 countries.
Applications open 15 August and close on 10 November 2013.
