Kader Attia: The Museum of Emotion

Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre, 337-338 Belvedere Rd

The Hayward Gallery presents, in their lower galleries, the first major survey in the UK dedicated to the thought-provoking and influential art by Kader Attia. Attia’s work span a wide range of media, the works in this exhibition inventively explore the ways in which colonialism continues to shape how Western societies represent and engage with non-Western cultures.

A key group of artworks explore the idea of repair as both a physical and symbolic act, relating to individual as well as social trauma. They reflect the artist’s belief that ‘our world today cannot be understood without taking into account the psychological and emotional aspects of society’.
