“Ancestral Blues – The Return to The State of L3”. / by Antonio Jose Guzman

In the exhibition, themes such as migration, roots and identity are explored. The title Ancestral Blues was partly inspired by [the musical genre] Blues, sprung forth from great migration flows in the past.  Following German cultural theorist and art historian Fatima El-Tayeb, we propose a concept of the diaspora that includes individuals who may not have a “lost home” but, despite their status as “citizens”, have been marginalized.
