Artistic Practices around 1990

In fall 2015, mumok will look back at international art activities around 1990. On three levels, we are showing installations, publications, objects, projects, films, and interventions by more than 50 artists and artists’ groups. In the context of larger societal changes around 1990, artists increasingly discussed the social functions and base of their work. Reflecting on the conditions of artistic production and art’s presentation was, in various ways, intertwined with work on actual social issues.

Chinafrika.
A traveling construction site

Economic and political relations between the People’s Republic of China and numerous countries on the African continent have intensified greatly over the past two decades. The economic and geopolitical consequences of this development have been a topic of international discussion for some time.

However, the cultural concomitants have been largely ignored. The curators and theorists Christian Hanussek and Jochen Becker have joined the experimental film-maker Daniel Kötter to visit cultural transfer sites between China and Africa to conduct field research.

In their show they present initial research findings, theories, anecdotes and video works from Lubumbashi or Lagos, examining “Chinafrican” activity in the Copper Belt, in the frontier region of Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo and reporting on the markets of Hong Kong or around Johannesburg. The view of Chinese miners in Chingola or African street food vendors on Baohan Zhijie, the “African Street” in Guangzhou, round off the survey of a global process that will also fundamentally change the cultural imagination of Europe.
