The research group Culture & Education is hosting an open guest lecture Renzo Martens: from ‘Enjoy Poverty’ to ‘White Cube'.

Twelve years after his ground-breaking documentary Episode III: Enjoy Poverty (2008), artist Renzo Martens premieres a new film, White Cube. In this film, Congolese plantation workers build a museum on a former Unilever plantation and create art in order to create their own world.

During this guest lecture, Martens will discuss his work; specifically, the responsibility the artist takes for the systems in which he operates.
