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

In 2012, artist Renzo Martens established Human Activities and its “reverse gentrification program” in DR Congo. Together with the plantation workers of Cercle d'Art des Travailleurs de Plantation Congolaise (CATPC), he employs artistic critique to build a new world, not symbolically, but in material terms.

Twelve years after his ground-breaking documentary Episode III: Enjoy Poverty (2008), Renzo Martens premiered 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.
