Over the last centuries narratives in art and history have been dominated by an euro-centric - largely white, male and wealthy - perspective. Generations after generations across the globe have been raised with stories that offer a very limited display of events and perspectives, and the education system as such has proven to be a harmful influence at times.

During this event we’ll talk with various artists that resist the euro-centric male-dominated historiography and dedicate their practices to the re-telling and re-structuring of history by honoring people that have for too long been ignored. Furthermore we will discuss how they are (re-)imagining possible futures, inspired by the very worldviews that European imperialism tried to exterminate.
