As part of SECESSION, a long-term project that proposes to rethink and reshape the European space on the basis of translation, migration and hybridization, a series of dissident maps and installations created for the event will be exhibited at the Institut français in Berlin.
Conceived as “the map of anger and shame,” the exhibition assembles the work of artists who’ve been invited to reinvent the map of Europe. In their maps, they shift and deconstruct the dominant representation of the European space, thus designing Europe anew.
During the show’s opening evening on September 16, at 7pm, there will be a talk with Simona Koch, Kader Attia and Camille de Toldeo on the subject of “Europe as a Work of Art.”
On September 30, 2014, also at 7pm, Cédric Parizot and Leyla Dakhli will discuss “The Cartography of Anger.” This discussion will be followed by a meeting with Aliocha Imhoff and Kantuta Quiros, the initiators of the project le peuple qui manque. All of these discussions will take place at the Institut français in Berlin.
On the SECESSION page of this site you will find a presentation of the artists, and regular updates about the exhibition.
