lepeuplequimanque – Aliocha Imhoff & Kantuta Quiros
Founded in 2005 in Paris by Aliocha Imhoff & Kantuta Quiros, le peuple qui manque (a people is missing) is a curatorial platform which operates between contemporary art and research. For few years now, they focused their practices on discursive events and exhibitions outside the exhibition, through different devices such as diplomatic congress, mock trials, parliaments, debate contests, disputes. They have been involved in many contemporary debates such as postcolonial and queer issues, accelerationism and philosophy of times.

'My practice as an art historian, curator and editor is dedicated to strengthen the visibility of and discourse around contemporary art from non-European and non-US-American contexts with a focus on African Perspectives. My approaches seek to mediate and propagate marginalised, complex (art) histories and debates in an accessible way to create new counter-narratives in a cultural discourse.'

At a moment when politics has abdicated proposing new future imaginaries. What is the role of culture to develop and experiment with new ways of living and working together? How can critical imaginaries open up new politic horizons and forms of futurity?
