DECOLONISATION IN THE 2020s

A series of events taking place throughout March 2021, organised by the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP), UAL's Decolonising Arts Institute and 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 collaborators from DeAI and Goldsmiths 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.
