With its one-year research and exhibition program ”UNTIE TO TIE – On Colonial Legacies and Contemporary Societies”, the ifa-Galerie Berlin explores the intersections between artistic and social discourses related to the colonial structures in contemporary realities.

The gallery becomes a  place, to encourage encounters between stories, whether told, written, designed or performed. From March 2017 to March 2018, the colonial legacies in contemporary societies will be addressed in four chapters: global relatedness, urban cultures, forms of feminism and riots as resistance.

To create more space for this exchange between subjective positions, the ifa-Galerie Berlin is developing a new structure based on three pillars: “Art in Conversation”, a public program in response to the exhibition; a “Meeting Point” with a reading and a hearing station; and a “Digital Platform”: untietotie.org

Chapter 1:  Kolmanskop Dream by Pascale Marthine Tayou
Opening Thursday, 30 March 2017, 7 pm

The opening exhibition is dedicated to Pascale Marthine Tayou. With his solo exhibition „Kolmanskop Dream“, Tayou creates a mental sculpture of the city of Kolmanskop, a former colonial German settlement and today’s ghost town in the Namib Desert.
