Photography, video, installation: for the first time, the musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac is dedicating a major exhibition to contemporary images. Twenty-six non-European artists are featured! By choosing artists with diverse profiles, from young emerging creators to major authors, the museum is following in the path of its programme of residencies and explorations carried out over the last ten years. The projects are numerous, diverse and rich in approach. The South African Santu Mofokeng dives into intimate stories and images through the collection of ancient photographs; the Egyptian Heba Y. Amin materializes the social and colonial fractures in urban space; Gosette Lubondo (DRC) repopulates abandoned places of their former inhabitants; between theatre and performance, the Mexican Yoshua Okón plays with reality and incites the spectator to question his role in the installation. Together, the works dialogue and propose a representation of the self, a perception of territories or a reappropriation of the historical and political narrative. A fertile exhibition, this is the perfect opportunity to see works rarely exhibited in France!
