Adel Abidin, Bread of Life, 2008
The exhibition Localities is part of the nationwide festival My World Images, whose overall theme is 'my world'. How free are you really? Localities focuses on a world of zones, where certain fantasies and ideas are struggling against each other. Selected artists from the Middle East, Africa and Europe are showing works that are based on the local, its peculiarities and the cultural and political reality in the world's various zones. The zones are broken and the understanding of the local and the idea of the particular turned upside down in the exhibited works. Through the use of real and fictional narratives, the artists question the world images we consume every day.
