Ente di Decolonizzazione, Borgo Rizza

 

Ente di Decolonizzazione – Borgo Rizzais the new project of Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti (DAAR), supported by the Italian Council (2021) which explores the possibility of critical reuse and subversion of fascist colonial architecture through an art installation. 

Starting from the decomposition and recomposition of the facade of the Entity of Decolonization of the Sicilian Latifundia (1940) Borgo Rizza (Siracusa), the installation is composed of several modules-sittings that that are the platform of an open discursive space where the public is invited to reconsider critically the social, political and economic effect of fascist and colonial heritage and at the same time is invited to image collectively new common uses. The installation will be presented and activated in several venues in Napoli (2022), Berlin (2022), Bruxells (2023) and Albissola Marina (2023). Ente di Decolonizzazione – Borgo Rizza –
