Nasser Road, Kampala: nicknamed Uganda’s Silicon Valley. This street is a mythical place known for its printing trade and as a centre of fraud. From fake identity cards to university degrees, anything can be made and bought here.

A photographical discovery of a place where everything seems simultaneously unthinkable and real, a place where everything is possible.


"The posters in this book are striking and provocative in a number of ways. There's their aesthetic, a mixture of image copied from the internet and flashy colours, showing images of Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden or Mohammed Khaddafi transformed into Hollywood action figures such as RoboCops or Rambo, but with their faces replaced by those of national and international politicians..... In doing so, the posters catch the viewer's attention, and raise many questions. Who would buy or make these posters: and why do they use such outspoken visual language? What is their political meaning, and upon which histories and worldviews do they thrive?"

"It's important to emphasize that this book is very much a tribute to the work of the graphic designers of Nasser Road. As explained in this text, their work often finds itself the victim of government harassment and confiscation, with some designers and publishers having been (temporarily) imprisoned. Given the danger they are exposed to, their work has to remain anonymous, very much at their request. This unfortunately makes it impossible to credit the posters to their individual creators, but I hope thsi book allows to showcase their work."
