Wallpaper
Photographs from Presidential Press Service archive of Conference of Heads of State or Governments of Non>Aligned Countries, 1-5 September 1961, Belgrade. Dimensions variable (originally 1400cm x 440 cm)

Gather round me, my writers, musicians, artists: my name is NAM is informed by the idea that the collective statement articulated as a call for a new kind of internationalism by the 25 delegates of the first Conference of the Non>Aligned Movement (NAM) in Belgrade, September 1961, remains unanswered. It enquires into the possibilities of 'prolonging' the formation of the NAM into the social conditions of the present. The NAM can be understood as a third space of emancipation that sought to unsettle the bipolar world order through a wide variety of anti-colonial thinking.
