Across the world local communities are displaced in conflicts about the right to forests, agricultural land, minerals and watercourses.

This winter's group exhibition at Göteborgs Konsthall, Every Leaf Is an Eye, references this colonial violence, and demonstrates how various local, political and historical events are intimately interconnected in a global struggle for the ways of life threatened by the exploitation of corporations, governments and colonial powers.

In engaging with how communities, memories, cultures and lives are impacted by the ravages of exploitation, the exhibition brings contemporary art in relation to collective activism, highlighting the politics of power, violence and justice.

Participating artists: Otobong Nkanga (Nigeria/Belgium), Isuma (Canada), Anders Sunna (Sweden) & Michiel Brouwer (Sweden/the Netherlands) and Simon Gush (South Africa).

You find Göteborgs Konsthall at Götaplatsen, next to Göteborgs konstmuseum. Always free admisson.
