The international exhibition NEVER CROSS THE SAME RIVER TWICE underlines the transnational dialogues on negotiating identities and everyday life through performance gestures that wish to cross borders on experience and subjectivity.
The title derives from the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus’ quote: “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same man”. People are looking to make deep changes in our environmental and energy systems, our economic, representative and regulatory systems.
This research project is a time shifting narrative providing a space for reflection in the age of constant accessibility. The participating artists tackle subjects that challenge us to reflect on the changing world in which we live.
Many of the works are a critical “intervention”: they are sites of visual contestation; cinematic aesthetics, with narratives that re-member; and they decolonize both...the mind and the imagination.
The collective ranges from films that feature those who were colonized and subjugated, to films that work as forms of activism; and what Walter Mignolo terms “epistemic disobedience”.
