BODA BODA LOUNGE PROJECT
Boda Boda Lounge is a continent-wide video art festival and was initiated by VANSA, Centre d’art Waza (Lubumbashi, DRC) and VAN Lagos (Lagos, Nigeria) in 2014. The biennial festival takes place simultaneously at around 15 art spaces across the continent over a weekend in November. Boda Boda Lounge intends to enable wide access for African artists to be part of the festival and at the same time working with a range of African arts organisations. It is an engagement with low-cost, widely accessible exchange processes on the African continent.
Soft Pow(ers) (2018) was the 3rd edition of the project. VANSA hosted the Johannesburg leg of the festival on 17 November 2018 from 7 pm at Keleketla Library! as part of their Lephephe Print Gatherings 3.
