African Object 2016

AFRICAN OBJECT The third part of the Project documents a reception center in Europe that tries to express values that promise integration and access to welfare, where the patchwork of this apparent inclusion, does not seem to become a real point of strength, but a reinforcement of dead-end streets.
The sensation is that of having reached the end of history, the end of a Western civilization and culture that promotes illusory developments of integration, and the failure to recognize diversity.
The other, the one who is different from oneself, the bearer of new energies and new interactions, is disregarded and continuously devalued, indeed used to create horizontal splits in defense and support of those in power. The concepts of separation and extraneousness, the polarity between rich and poor explicate the lines of a frenetic capitalism where the identity of the subjects is postponed only to the economic and contractual value.
