This World Is White No Longer

Text by Thorsten Sadowsky, taken from the introduction of the publication, ‘This World Is White No Longer’:

“How can an Austrian art museum that has stated its support of a diverse and inclusive society take a critical and appropriate view of phenomena like racism and xenophobia?

How can it look at issues such as physical and structural violence, cultural identity, and social exclusion, and also promote the decolonization of thinking?

Key points of reference are self-criticism and the deconstruction of the white gaze onto the world, which has always been wrong and one-sided, but whose validity has only been challenged in recent decades.” (Curator, Thorsten Sadowsky).

This book documents and continues the discourse initiated in 2021 with the two-part exhibition ‘This World Is White No Longer’ by the Generali Foundation at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg.

The focus is on artistic positions that deal decidedly with questions of racism and xenophobia and examine the “change of perspective” as a method for questioning the supremacy of one’s own worldview.

Accpompanies the exhibition ‘This World Is White No Longer: Views of a Decentered World’, presented by Generali Foundation, 24 Apr — 10 October 2021, Museum der Moderne Salzburg.

Featuring English and German text.

Book design by Anja Krautgasser.
