Undefined Territories: Perspectives on Colonial Legacies

Undefined Territories: Perspectives on Colonial Legacies

Barcelona Contemporary Art Museum (MACBA). May 17th to October 20th, 2019

In April 1955, representatives of 29 newly, and struggling-to-be, independent countries from Asia and Africa gathered for a conference in Bandung, Indonesia, to champion common interests of national sovereignty, decolonisation, anti-imperialism and economic development. From this encounter emerged the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) formed by nations that embraced the above and shunned the polarities of the Cold War – the Third World. Through the works of artists from varied geographies and diasporas, the exhibition also points to the challenges of independence and the postcolonial condition.
