About the exhibition

On the occasion of the 12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, artists from different parts of the world are dealing with the legacies of modernity and the resulting planetary emergency under the title Still Present! In addition to the artistic works, the exhibition features historical documents, including political and activist publications from the Archive of the Avant-Garde – Egidio Marzona (AdA). The contributions make visible lines of connection between colonialism, fascism and imperialism and test decolonial strategies for the future along a series of questions. How can a decolonial ecology be shaped? What role can feminist movements from the Global South play in the re-appropriation of historical narratives? How can the debate on restitution be made productive beyond the return of looted objects? Can the field of emotions be reclaimed through art?

“As diverse and varied as the cosms that make up the human living world today are, they all exist amidst the waste and disruption that define the frenzied and destructive production race of global capitalism. During the modern era, our planet has undergone close successive ruinous changes that have accelerated at an alarming rate as we enter the third millennium. We have not arrived at the place we are today by chance: It has emerged from historical formations built up over centuries. In their selfishness, modern Western societies have taken their own liberal character for granted, wrongly assuming that the balance between free trade and universal suffrage guarantees a self-regulating system with universal democratic values. From this utopian promise we have inherited a dystopian society that denies any responsibility for the chaos it produces. The world is scarred by the wounds that have been created in the course of the history of Western modernity. If they are not repaired, they will continue to haunt our societies.”
