IN, AMONG AND BETWEEN by Leila Gamaz, Elodie Sacher and Younes El Hossaini [of 560 Zoom], Sabrina Mumtaz Hasan and Jessica El Mal with Sara Bendabdallah, considers extinction within contemporary global, in particular post-colonial, relations and climate justice especially in the context of North Africa. As such, the focus of the exhibition is on both extinct species – for example the Barbary lion and the North African elephant, and endangered species such as Gelidium Sesquipedale (a red algae species), sea cucumber and sardines. Capitalism, which is inherently racial and exploitative, has fuelled these losses and follows a trail back to European and colonial influence and the desire to extract and hunt the so called exotic. This plays out in neocolonial and paternalistic relations between the Global North and South today.
The exhibition includes films, sound installation, photography and research. You can buy a digital download of our publication here.
