More and more the politics of the Western world are being questioned and we ask ourselves who has the right to knowledge, is there a right and wrong when it comes to cultural values and social development? From a post-colonial perspective there needs to be a radical change that connects us to our past, our environment and our autonomy. By creating a place for the viewer to collaborate with the work through text, drawing and stencils the audience has a hand in the process of thought and ideas that they wish to express and be heard.
