The 5th issue of ARC brings together a range of artists and writers exploring and experimenting with concepts of Power, Identity, Blackness, Interpretations of Creolization and Belonging.
Featured Artist: Charl Landvreugd
Surinamese artist Charl Landvreugd interacts with Dutch writer Rob Perée to produce Don't talk Black, Do Black. Their discourse centres on Black European aesthetics, its intricacies, dynamics and language. By taking historical European art forms and embellishing them through a creolized lens, the artist subverts all meaning, creating personal hybrids that seek to expand upon his lived experiences.
