Or the Archipelagos of Édouard Glissant

$70.00

In our current moment, there is much to remind one of the international debates swirling around cosmopolitanism at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, homogenizing forces are leading to extinctions, both through environmental degradation and the disappearance of cultural phenomena, yet at the same time, to refuse the forces of globalization risks returning to dangerous forms of neo-localism and neo-nationalism. Returning to a key creative thinker of our time, the exhibition proposes the importance of a nuanced version of global dialogue, now more than ever. Mondialité will feature visual artworks and environments, documentary film and songs, dramaturgical structures and archival material. Building on the experimental projects that Obrist curated and Raza co-created dramaturgies for, Solaris Chronicles and A stroll through a fun palace , the book will unfold in time as well as expand across space.
