    Our presentation in the 56th Art Biennale includes a space-installation under the title A Trans-African Worldspace.  It aims to present the Invisible Borders project as a complimentary association between process and outcome. It will emphasize on the collective, dynamic and organic nature of the project while preserving the individuality of the body of works created by various artists. Moreover, we will present in the ARENA a feature length documentary about Invisible Borders followed by a discussion on the State of Things in the trans-African contemporary art scene and the critical ideas at the center of our practice.

    Congratulations to the 136 artists invited to participate, including John Akomfrah, Karo Akpokiere, Sammy Baloji, Nidhal Chamekh, Marlene Dumas, Kay Hassan, Samson Kambalu, Goncalo Mabunda, Ibrahim Mahama, Abu Bakarr Mansaray, Wangechi Mutu, Cheikh Ndiaye, Emeka Ogboh, Joachim Schonfeldt, Massinissa Selmani, Fatou Kande Senghor, Mikhael Subotzky, Barthelemy Toguo,
