TRANSFER(T)S : Africalia '03: Contemporary African Art
BRUSSELS  •  Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles  •  Ongoing
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.
