> DESCRIPTION

"How are we to write the histories of non-western societies in relation to modernity?" In his groundbreaking essay "Modernity and Its Others: Three 'Moments' In The Post-war History of the Black Diaspora Arts", Stuart Hall re-visits modernity through three historical art movements (the 'last colonials', the 'post-colonials' and the contemporary) from the perspective of the Diaspora. This discourse was used as the basis of the invitation to 11 artists of three Caribbean countries; the Bahamas, Martinique and Barbados to come to Liverpool and make new work under the City States theme.
