Art and Economic Inequality Project in Lusanga

Archinect just published a review of a new museum, referred to as the White Cube, located on a former plantation in Congo. The review, titled “The OMA-Designed Lusanga International Research Centre on Art and Economic Inequality Aims to Expose and Redress Economic Inequalities,” appeared March 31, 2017 and is written by Nicholas Korody.

This museum is 100% dedicated to “the transformation of former plantation spaces into areas for artistic critique, beauty, and ecological diversity, through funneling art world capital back to the plantations it was originally extracted from — to create, in other words, a post-plantation.”

“Plugged into international networks, the White Cube will focus at once on exposing worldwide inequalities and generating a new and inclusive economic and ecological model to redress them,” states the press release.
