Invisible borders take road trip across continents

09 June 2014, 20:13

Lagos -Going from Lagos, Nigeria to Sarajevo in Bosnia is not a big deal. Board a plane. It will be a big deal if one goes by road from Nigeria to Bosnia, but for the Invisible Borders Trans-African Photographers Organization, going for their first Trans-Continental Road Trip from Lagos to Sarajevo, it’s a reality.

  Ten people, made up of writers, photographers and film makers from Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Kenya, Eritrea, will leave Lagos through 21 countries in Africa and Europe to reach their destination.

The fifth edition of this 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.

“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 re?ections 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” according to Emeka Okereke who is the head of the project.

The journey will last 151 days (22 weeks) from the 2nd of June until 31st of October 2014.

The bus trip will take them from Nigeria through 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.

The activities of the trip can be followed o the online blog and on the Invisible Borders web app.
