White Cube

Renzo Martens

Congolese plantation workers successfully co-opt the concept of the “whitecube” gallery space as a means to stop the commercial exploitation of their land.

This documentary sees Martens continue on from Enjoy Poverty (2008), in which he encouraged impoverished African people to use photography to exploit their own suffering. On that occasion however, the local population earned nothing from their efforts. This new film documents his attempt to reverse the flow of wealth and use the privileges associated with the artworld to bring about real change.
