For Positions #4 the Van Abbemuseum invited four artists; Gluklya (Natalia Pershina-Jakimanskaya), Naeem Mohaiemen and the duo Sandi Hilal & Alessandro Petti. These artists share a link to art as activism, and all use art as a basis to talk about the pressures produced by the burdens of history, injustice and political change. They tell stories about particular parts of the world with film, drawings, architecture, the archive, texts, education and fashion. Together, they sketch out a picture of the continuous human presence in an uncertain world and how new solutions and possibilities are emerging. Whether exploring the legacy of the Non-Aligned Movement, or looking at the current situation of refugees in Amsterdam or Bethlehem, the artists seek to turn historical failures and contemporary strife into learning situations from which a viewer can find new inspiration.
