Beyond the Nation State I Want to Dream

Dorine van Meel

Dorine van Meel’s forthcoming exhibition at Decad considers the construct of nation states and national identity in Europe as vehicles of destructive force, enabling the deadly reality of barriers and a harmful illusion of binaries. Van Meel’s video Beyond the Nation State I Want to Dream combines computer-generated images of sites crucial to the history of imperialism and capitalism. Among others, these include the Berlin Conference of 1884; Fort Elmina, the first European settlement in West Africa; and the now-demolished statue of J. P. Coen in what once was Batavia.
