Exhibition, Villa Empain, Brussels, Belgium.
Mondialité focuses on Edouard Glissant and his inspiring call for a global dialogue that does not erase local cultures. In our current time, there is much to remind one of the international debates swirling around cosmopolitanism at the beginning of the 20th century.
The exhibition features visual artworks and environments, documentary film and songs, dramaturgical structures and archival material. It unfolds in time as well as expanding across space, aiming to bring visitors into contact with Glissant’s thought and the urgency of returning to his terrain, a relational form of perceiving and thinking.
