The Body’s Legacies. The Post-Colonial Body

The Body’s Legacies. The Post-Colonial Body

Over the past five years French-Algerian artist Kader Attia has been developing an expansive oeuvre of films, in which he gives the word to people who are deeply involved in matters of post-colonial life and its cultural, psychological, political and philosophical dimensions. Intellectuals and practitioners routed in Western and Non-Western cultures speak from their knowledge and experience of the ambivalent nature of historical progress that can be regarded as a process of injury and repair leaving its traces in social psychopathology. Attia’s film works can be seen as a complex artistic stream of reflection, composed of voices and images giving testimony of the historically determined „fields of emotions“, that are the fertile ground for today’s social condition.
