negra - Immigrants Between Africa And Europe
negra is the name of an old and meanwhile occupied enterprise
in the streets of Barcelona. It is home to more than 60 African immigrants
who tried to find a new life in Europe.
They eventually found a temporary place to stay in the occupied building,
allowing them to live with their own people, sharing the same destinies and the same way of living.
The house seems to be stuck between Europe and Africa without reaching one side nor the other.
Days mostly seem to be the same.
The documentation gives a brief impression of what it is like to come to Europe, legally or illegally.
It shows the hopes and dreams of the residents and reflects a young generation of mostly Senegalese people trying to find a future.
