WHO OWNS THE LAND:
ART AS AGENT OF EXPRESSION
CONFLICT, STATELESSNESS, DIASPORA, COLONIALITY

ONLINE SHOW

‘Who owns the land?’ is an exhibition online investigating the relationship between contemporary art and the concept of ‘motherland’, through 4 macro-categories: state of conflict, state of coloniality, state of statelessness and state of diaspora.
On this occasion, the artists personally chose the artwork that best represents the exhibition theme and provided an explanation and a biography to accompany it. From sculpture to digital art, the show unveils with the artists’ own words all the criticalities related to such states through a wide range of mediums, from bronze sculpture to digital art. The project also aims to develop in time an online archive which explores how artists engage socially and politically with their lands and the concept of sovereignty.
