ABOUT THE EXHIBITION /

"Decolonizing Appearance" is the first exhibition in CAMP’s new 2-year focus! exhibition program "State of Integration: Artistic analyses of the challenges of coexistence." The exhibit is guest curated by Nicholas Mirzoeff, visual culture theorist from New York University, and examines what appearance is, how appearance is used to classify, separate, and rule human beings on a hierarchical scale, and how we can challenge this regime.

Bringing together some of contemporary art’s most engaged individuals and collectives from across the globe, it asks: How do the colonized and the colonizer appear to each other? How can the colonized have the right to look, the right to be seen – in short, the right to appear? What would happen when appearance is decolonized?

OM UDSTILLINGEN /

"At dekolonisere fremtræden" er den første udstilling i CAMPs nye 2-årige fokus! udstillingsprogram "Integrationens tilstand: Kunstneriske analyser af sameksistensens udfordringer".

Udstillingen er gæstekurateret af visuel kultur-teoretiker Nicholas Mirzoeff fra New York University og undersøger, hvad fremtræden er, hvordan fremtræden bruges til at klassificere, adskille og styre mennesker iht. en hierarkisk skala, og hvordan vi kan udfordre dette regime. Den bringer nogle af samtidskunstens mest engagerede individer og kollektiver fra hele verden sammen og spørger: Hvordan fremtræder den koloniserede og kolonisatoren for hinanden? Hvordan kan den koloniserede påberåbe sig retten til at se, retten til at blive set – kort sagt, retten til at fremtræde? Hvad vil der ske, når fremtræden dekoloniseres?
