Afterall Art School

Decolonisation in the 2020s

A series of events taking place throughout March 2021, organised by the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) and University of the Arts London (UAL) in collaboration with Goldsmiths, Department of Visual Cultures.

Since 2017, MASP and Afterall have been working together to explore practices that question and critique colonial legacies in contemporary artmaking, curation, teaching and critical art writing. We now join with UAL’s Decolonising Arts Institute and Goldsmiths Department of Visual Cultures to explore the key stakes of decolonisation in the 2020s, and the problematics of attempting to do so within and through institutions.

Explore essays and videos from this discursive project, taking in the perspectives of  artists, activists, academics and art workers, each centred on a specific site of struggle.

Art School 2020

Art School 2020 was and is our pilot Art School project, launched following the temporary closure of Central Saint Martins during the COVID-19 pandemic. This ongoing project explores works of art that engage with vital questions around teaching and learning, from a diverse but interconnected network of histories and geographies. Explore published writings and recorded video discussions that ask what we can learn from art at a time when crises of distance and shifts in technology ask that rethink our pedagogies.
