Collecte coloniale et affect - Ramper, dédoubler
In his contribution for the 8th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art (2014), Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc takes as a departure point the ethnographic and entomologic collections that his grandfather gathered in Gabon and French Guyana in 1931 while working as a health officer. Such practice inevitably raises questions about the ways in which modern scientific knowledge was closely tied to and facilitated by colonialism. This book, based on a series of discursive events organised in the framework of Abonnencs project, fosters and continues critical conversations between artists, researchers, activists, and theorists. With contributions by Lotte Arndt, Catalina Lozano, and others.
