In 'Fragments of Repair', artist Kader Attia proposes the notion of decolonial repair as a tactic to engage with the planetary urgencies of collective mental health in a world wounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. Injury, wound and repair have been key concepts across Attia's artistic practice, especially in relation to the material and immaterial injustices of colonial violence that persist into the present. The current conditions bring these injustices into sharper relief, while adding additional injuries through chronic uncertainty, social isolation, exhaustion, loss, and fear.
What pathways can repair – not a return to past ways, but an itinerary shaped by demands for decolonization and the politics of restitution – offer to life in and out of the viral and psychological pandemonium?
