Institute for Decolnization of ART - Institutet för Diaspora och Avkolonisering (IDA) (2016-2020)

IDA was an art collective based in Stockholm active between 2016-2020 founded by Estella Burga, Isabel Löfgren, and Macarena Dusant.

IDA approached issues in power structures within contemporary art, specifically in the Nordic region, from a decolonized perspective. This entailed the identification of mechanisms of exclusion and understanding which strategies are being used by marginalized artists, artist groups and collectives with which IDA shares a background of migration, outsiderness, inbetweenness, transculturality and assimilation.

IDA investigated knowledge structures and knowledge production in contemporary art in Sweden through concepts such as diaspora, creolization and decolonization in a variety of projects with the aim to reflect and initiate discussions about art’s structural system from from an artistic and cultural perspective. How can we write another (other) art history(ies)?
