Rewinding Internationalism Scenes from the 90s

19/11/2022 - 30/04/2023

The Old Building

In ten separate scenes, more than forty artists, researchers and collectives present a range of perspectives on internationalism. This movement advocates greater cooperation between states and nations.

New work

For this ambitious group exhibition, Lubaina Himid and Magda Stawarska, susan pui san lok and Didem Pekün have created new work in which the use of video, audio, scripts and sampling form a common thread. The starting point is the nineties of the past century. A time in which world relations were changing rapidly as a result of globalization.

New internationalism

In art, some embraced the ‘New Internationalism’, which – from a Western perspective – called for an end to the central focus on Western European and American standpoints. Rewinding Internationalism winds back and forth between the nineties and the present, examining what has become of these developments.

With the support of the Mondriaan Fund and the Henry Moore Foundation. Part of Our Many Europes, a project by the museum confederation L’Internationale and co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. In collaboration with Netwerk Aalst, Villa Arson in Nice and the University of Gothenburg.
