|Is contemporary art the domain which best reflects the complex relations between Africa and the rest of the world? In a bid to answer this question, the TRANSFER(T)S exhibition brings together several recognised and emerging visual artists using different medias (installations, sculpture, video, painting and photography). |
The title, TRANSFER(T)S, depicts the permanent flows of people, capital, goods and ideas which characterize our world. Two sub-themes underlie the exhibition, without systematically determining the layout. The first one, "the death of otherness ", is a deliberately provocative thesis, which refers to the discourse on the homogenization of the world. The second theme tackles the "acceleration of history ": disasters, terrorism and wars are given ample media coverage, creating feelings of permanent anxiety and urgency.
