We are excited to announce that Kader Attia will be the curator of the 12th Berlin Biennale, which will take place form June 11 to September 18, 2022.
The artist proposal is concerned with decolonial thinking as an ongoing conversation that allows reparation in different spheres of society. Attia is particularly interested in the notion of reparation as a critical agent which allows questions such as “How can decolonization of art be conceived – from the restitution of plundered goods to an anticolonial culture of memory? What role can non-Western feminist movements play in the reappropriation of history and identity?, How are climate crises and colonialism related?, and How can resource extraction be resisted and native knowledge acknowledge to preserve ecosystems?”, which will be discussed through exercises regarding the possibility of liberation of knowledge, thinking, and action from colonial patterns.
Our artists Uriel Orlow and Lawrence Abu Hamdan will also participate in the Biennial with works in some of the event’s venues.
Stay tuned for more details regarding the Biennale
