Curatorial note

They decreed that African cultures were to disappear, where white civilisation was to be adopted. Thus the idea of a lost paradise becomes inherent in the discourse on African peoples. The colonial process disenfranchises the colonized from their own land as well as from their own bodies, appearing as a blank page. Our assumption is that this blank page needs to be rewritten through dreams. What the dream also allows is to go beyond real or figurative limits to project oneself into a better future and on a collective level. This exhibition shows how some artists are responding to the contemporary challenges faced by the world and through the notion of dreams.
