MONOCULTURE – A recent history
M HKA, MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART ANTWERP – Until April 24, 2021 Antwerp (Belgium)
The MONOCULTURE – A Recent History exhibition assumes that any understanding of the concept of “multiculture” would require research into that of “monoculture”. Social understanding of “monoculture” can be defined as the homogeneous expression of the culture of a specific social or ethnic group. The project aims to approach the notion of monoculture with an open mind. It will therefore aim to conduct an analysis rather than develop an antithesis to monoculture. Not only from historical, social perspectives. Cultural and ideological. But also philosophical. Linguistic and agricultural. MONOCULTURE will provide an experimental mapping. Allowing a comparative analysis of the different manifestations of monoculture. As well as their reflection on art and propaganda. With a view to drawing conclusions which may be relevant for society and culture in general.
