Many artists regret the world of art. One says, "African contemporary art has been around since the 1960's. Being an African artist is a kind of gettoisation that I can not stand, I'm an artist and I'm African." But Victoria Mann, director of AKAA, states: "Our first mission is to decommission and undo geographers. Our selection criteria, this is not the nationality or workplace and workplace, proof of claiming a link to Africa. (…) The idea is to recreate a map of contemporary art, to be placed in the middle of Africa, and this center to see all the axis, all eyes, all the pieces, created south-south, south-south and south.
