Translation as Hospitality

13 February '24 at 11:00 am - 10 March '24 at 6:00 pm

The Mosaic Rooms is pleased to present ‘Translation as Hospitality’ by The School of Mutants, an installation for learning and knowledge distribution shown in London for the first time.

Central to the installation is a library of books and materials curated by the collective that draws on anti-colonial thought, African philosophy, and radical politics that have forged political communities. The installation continues the collective’s preoccupation with translation as an act of hospitality, sharing knowledge and history across different periods and geographies and communities.

‘Translation as Hospitality’ invites the dreams of the past to translate themselves into the present and into our collective social and political desires.

The School of Mutants is a collaborative platform for art and research initiated in 2018 in Dakar, Senegal. Working across geographies and engaging with socio-cultural, ecological, and aesthetic mutations of the real, the collective aims to mobilise spaces for the production, transmission, and pluralisation of knowledge in non-hierarchical ways.
