Talk Inner Lines – Discourse on Decolonization of Nature

2. Februar 2018 @ 19:30 - 22:00

Considering „Inner Lines“ as a local testimony of nature-human relationship embedded in a global political and historical context, the artist talk Decolonization of Nature will carry out discourses on the development paradigm and modernization as well as indigenous worldviews and belief systems that define nature beyond the ‘nature-culture’ binary.

Exhibition Information

INNER LINES by Desire Machine Collective

An artistic reflection on the geographical and political landscape & A discourse on ‘decolonization of nature’

Realized by Desire Machine Collective as an artistic multimedia installation, Inner Lines leads us tactilely through a water world of rocky mountains and stunning panoramas of land, river and sacred spaces along the river Brahmaputra in Northeastern India. Examining the river’s water issues through a variety of documentation, Inner Lines raises questions of a capitalist society, where the planet’s materials unavoidably become a resource for human consumption.

Desire Machine Collective is a collaborative founded in 2004 by two Indian artists Sonal Jain and Mriganka Madhukaillya, whose interdisciplinary practice examines ecology, technology and activism through experimental multimedia art, public intervention, curating and writing. Their recent exhibitions include (amongst others) the India Art Fair (2017); the 11th Shanghai Biennale, China (2016-17); the Three Rivers Script Lab at Rome, the British Museum, London (2016); Project 88 in Mumbai (2014); New Museum of Contemporary Art, Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York, 3rd edition of La Triennale, Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2012); and Venice Biennale (2011).

The final outcome of Inner Lines is held by NON Berlin in cooperation with Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung and participates in the programme of Transmediale and CTM Vorspiel 2018.
