Decolonialartarchives is a labor of love. It is a platform that strives to collaboratively build a forum for artists, curators and cultural workers to develop ways of interrogating colonial narratives – in the arts and beyond. It is based in Berlin but reaches beyond the bubble of Berlin’s art and cultural scenes to connect with the works, projects, life experiences and knowledge archives of those working hard around the world to dismantle the structures of white supremacy and extractive racial capitalism, particularly in the way that BIPoC knowledges and narratives are tokenized or instrumentalized.
This project is a living archive and its collective strength and force comes from the undying conviction and labor of the artists, curators and cultural workers it brings together: those who tirelessly continue to expand and transform their practice in a global pandemic. Those who understand that art is not only of systemic importance (“systemrelevant”), but is absolutely crucial in fostering a sense of identity, belonging, community and critical voice in our societies. Decolonialartarchives invites you to be part of this ongoing conversation and this process of unlearning and (re-)connecting.
