In search of the “hybrid reality” of the visual cultures
Keywords:Aesthetics, Colonialism, Hybridity, Land, Self-representation
There is no one unique indigenous visual culture. It is as complex and hybrid as the land of an indigenous community, both its present and historical version, as social relations of any community. This special issue is hybrid. It reproduces the established power relations with the format of presentation, the language of publication or their referential framework. But, also, we hope, it contributes to the ongoing process of decolonisation and deconstructs at least some of the colonial influences.
The contributions that make this special issue – written and visual reflections about different genres of visual representation – complement each other and intentionally or unintentionally transform the issue into the community of voices. They engage in the discussion with textual, visual, aesthetic and analytical forms of representation, bringing some questions to the surface and leaving others behind the stage. Together they remind the readers and selves that the process of decolonisation is not even close to be done.
