Soft Power Desire Machines and the Production of Africa Rising

SOFT POWER DESIRE MACHINES low

 

 

Broadsheet cover

 

Alongside texts by Jesse Weaver Shipley, Moses März and Oribhabor Aigbokhaevbolo, this map features in the new Chronic. In this edition 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?

To view in hi-res, purchase the print newspaper or the PDF edition from our online shop. Copies coming to your nearest dealer now-now.
