Perspectives Sobre el Llegat Colonial │ MACBA, Barcelona

Bħalissa, fil-Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona – MACBA, wieħed dawnk il-mużewijiet li jiġbduk lejhom bl-immaġni stimulanti u mbagħad inżommok imqabbad magħhom bis-sustanza dinamika li joffru, hemm wirja mill-aqwa dwar Territorji Indefiniti. Perspettivi dwar il-Wirt Kolonjali (TERRITORIS INDEFINITS. PERSPECTIVES SOBRE EL LLEGAT COLONIAL).

Bir-raġun, tissemma Malta wkoll. Ġegħlitni nirrifletti fuq kemm fadlilna nirrakkontaw il-kolonjaliżmu li għexna. U d-dekolonizzazzjoni. Ġegħlitni naħseb ukoll, bħala ċittadin tal-“periferija” tad-dinja maħkuma minn ftit potenzi militari, kulturali u kummerċjali kbar, fuq kemm aħna maħkumin minn kolonjaliżmu “ġdid.”

“At the centre of the exhibition is Naeem Mohaiemen’s (b. 1969) acclaimed film Two Meetings and a Funeral (2017), which meticulously weaves together both archival footage and new shots with the narration of historian Vijay Prashad (b. 1967), to articulate the momentum and solidarity of the NAM’s leftist ideologies and unravel the complexities behind its unfortunate failure.”

Sabiħa u skunċertanti din il-wirja fil-MACBA.

“The exhibition is a reflection on the notion of territory in an expanded sense of the term, going beyond the mere geographical to also encompass questions of identity, culture, history and time, within the framework of colonial legacy.”
