MIGRATIONS 3: As the artist Patrick Altes writes, “The Mediterranean shores are nexus of civilisations that have traditionally cross-fertilised each other; colonial empires are gone but their toxic legacy remains and influence the way the ‘Other’ is perceived.”
Born Algeria, Patrick Altes’ interest in postcolonialism and its enduring effects on contemporary society is instrumental to his artistic process.
