We are glad to invite you to take part in the second activation of the Ente di Decolonizzazione – Borgo Rizza, a new installation by DAAR – Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti, at the 12 Berlin Biennale.

The project explores the possibilities of critical reappropriation, reuse, and subversion of fascist colonial architecture and its modernist legacy. The project intends to profane the building that is home to the “Entity of Colonization of the Sicilian Latifundia” (1940) in Borgo Rizza (Syracuse, Sicily), taking its facade and reusing it as seatings around which collectively rethink modernist and fascist legacies. Here, decolonial assemblies via public, open discourse will be held over the course of the activation.

 Every afternoon from 2 to 5 pm in the garden of the Academy of Arts on the 9, 10 and 11 of June.  Academy of Arts, Hanseatenweg 10, 10557. Access is free.
