We are Pirates of Uncharted History 2013

Nobuaki Takekawa’s contribution to the 2013 Biennale is of epic proportions. He describes it as an “ideological adventure” focusing on China, Asia and the Middle East. He proposes alternatives to the West’s great mythical narratives. Here maps, charts and objects form allegories that accumulate and unfold in space like exquisite accounts of personal, natural and cultural histories. Takekawa investigates the consequences of the Fukushima nuclear accidentas well as its causes and the global repercussions. Struck by the flagrant lack of reaction on the part ofthe authorities after the accident, Takekawa symbolises the history of the world as a galley full of slaves, rowing at the disembodied command of a world economygone completely mad – and with no one to stopthe ship drifting.
