To follow up on the 350 private initiatives that make up the "OFF", you can find the maps and a small selection here.
The “Off” of the Biennial of Contemporary African Art finds its origins in the very roots of the event, from the various editions of the 1990s to that of the year 2000, when it became an official part of the Biennale. It consists of autonomous artistic events organized around the central event and capitalizes an average of 350 projects.
