Positions #4


For Positions #4  four artists have been invited; Gluklya (Natalia Pershina-Jakimanskaya), Naeem Mohaiemen and the duo Sandi Hilal & Alessandro Petti. These artists share a link to art as activism, and all use art as a basis to talk about the pressures produced by the burdens of history, injustice and political change. The works make use of the languages of film, drawing, architecture, the archive, texts, education and fashion to build up a story about particular parts of the world. Whether exploring the legacy of the the legacy of the Non-Aligned Movement and Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, or looking at the current situation of migrants and refugees in Amsterdam or Bethlehem, the artists seek to turn historical failures and contemporary strife into learning situations from which a viewer can find new inspiration.
