The Europe that Colonised Europe (working title) by Catalina Lozano

Recently she has curated among others
– The gate towards the invisible must be visible, Casa del Lago, Mexico City (2012);
– ¿Tierra de nadie? at Centro Cultural Montehermoso, Vitoria-Gasteiz (2011)
– and co-curated Everything has a name, or the potential to be named at Gasworks, London (2009).
Between 2008 and 2010 she was responsible for Gasworks Residency Programme in London.
The Europe that Colonised Europe (working title) takes as a departing point the idea that the history of colonialism and that of modernity are inextricably linked. This project explores the origins of European colonialism in its processes of internal colonisation. What was suppressed in the process of becoming modern ? What liberties were taken ? How did Europe shape its modern mythology and how is it being contested today?Share
