EVERYTHING PASSES EXCEPT THE PAST | TUTTA PASSA TRANNE IL PASSATO: Which role takes photography in a culture of memory? What are the ethical implications for the use of colonial images and how to overcome their unsettling narratives?
The exhibition Everything Passes Except The Past presents photography and lens-based art works by Bianca Baldi, Alessandra Ferrini, Grace Ndiritu and the collective Troubled Archives (Michael Murtaugh, Rokia Bamba, Antje Van Wichelen) that confront, challenge and repurpose the colonial gaze. They expose the colonial image archive as being a power instrument of social regimentation and point to the potential for critical redesign.
