Colonial Wounds/Postcolonial Repair

Sculpture/New Media

MAR 12-APR 13
DUKE HALL GALLERY OF FINE ART - DUKE HALL


Colonial Wounds/Postcolonial Repair features historical film and photography in communication with the artwork of Franco-Algerian artist, Kader Attia. This exhibition examines the long cultural amnesia around World War I as a colonial-imperial war, contradicting its supposed aim to end all wars.
