Many artists regret the shackles in the art world. It is said, "Contemporary African art has existed since the 1960s. Being an African artist is a form of gettoisation that I can not stand, I'm an artist and I'm African." But Victoria Mann, director of AKAA, specifies: "Our first mission is to dismantle and regret the geographies. Our criteria for selection, it is not nationality or place of life and work, it is a criterion for claiming a link to Africa. …) The idea is to redraw a map of contemporary art, to center Africa, and this center to see all shoulders, all eyes, all passages, south-south and north-south, which are created. "
