2023-10-18 | Jean Katambayi Mukendi in the group show POWER at CIVA, Brussels

safda adf afs We are happy to share that our fellow Jean Katambayi Mukendi is a part of a group exhibition POWER at CIVA, Brussels.

POWER connects questions of energy and politics. The exhibition and accompanying program challenges viewers to consider how contemporary infrastructure relates to everyday life across intersecting concerns, including political institutions, citizen participation, geopolitics, energy transition, and climate justice. From oil and gas pipelines to domestic radiators, from wind turbines to recycling hubs, infrastructure is central to today’s debates surrounding systemic change. Objects of intense political, social, and economic contestation, these infrastructures distribute power in both senses of the word POWER : as energy and as politics.

Today, architects, landscape designers, artists, and urban practitioners perpetuate the regime of carbon modernity. Yet they are also in a unique position to shift discourse and practice toward large-scale energetic transformation.

Open from 13 October 2023 to 25 February 2024
