New Trade Routes: Soccer Cities

We make our own maps tracing the new trade routes for the export of young males bodies to the football industrial complex.

 

This map first appeared in The Chronic: New Cartographies (March 2015). In this edition of the Chronic, we ask: what if maps were made by Africans for their own use, to understand and make visible their own realities or imaginaries? How does it shift the perception we have of ourselves and how we make life on this continent? We don’t have an easy answer, nor will we find one alone. Together with Kwani? we’ve invited writers and artists to produce this new language, in words and images.
