ART // Decolonized Skies // Until January 15th


ART // The exhibition Decolonized Skies examines the possibility of expropriating the aerial view from those in power (the military, the state, and large corporations), so that the knowledge produced via aerial photography for instance, will serve for the benefit of the citizens rather than used against them. This process of democratizing the view from above is currently the focus of many artists, scholars and activists, particularly in light of the growing use of digital mapping systems on the one hand, and the intensive use of military drones for surveillance and attack on the other hand.

Decolonized Skies presents some of the most interesting projects conducted in this field in recent years by leading Israeli and international artists. With that, Decolonized Skies also addresses the growing trend in contemporary art of collaborations between artists, scientists, and scholars from different disciplines in the aim of finding a visual language that conflates the aesthetic with the ethical.
