We live in Capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art. Ursula K. Le Guin (1929 – 2018)
Artists: Boris Situm, Christopher Cozier & Darko Škrobonja, Ewan Atkinson, Gildo Bavchevicz, Ivica Jakšić Puko, Jorge Pineda, La Vaughn Belle, MAksaens Denis, Petar Grimani, Sharelly Emanuelson, Tanja Deman, Tirzo Martha and Toni Mestrovic. Curated by Branko Franceschi & Sasha Dees
In this exhibition we present a selection of Croatian artists in dialogue with artists living and working in the Caribbean. When emerged in the works in the exhibition they hold up a mirror where we are confronted with the reality of their societies and their issues while given context by reflecting on respective histories and with that offer us future. It aims to make us, the viewer, explore different visions and ways to actively participate in realizing a healthy and humane society. A society that contributes and plays an active role in the global community that might differ from the current dominant imperialistic voice of individualism and hyper capitalism.
