Abstract

Who More Sci-Fi Than Us gives an overview of contemporary Caribbean art. The Netherlands are connected to the region through the Dutch Caribbean islands (Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, Statia, Saba and St. Martin) and Suriname. Artists from the (former) Dutch Antilles and Suriname have been shown regularly in Holland, but mostly in their own right or connected to the shared Dutch past. This publication shows the artists within their own Caribbean cultural context.

Who More Sci-Fi Than Us covers the contemporary art in the whole region: from the Antiles and Surinam in the south to Cuba and Jamaica in the north, from Haiti and Martinique in the east to Panama and Costa Rica in the west. A very diverse region, with many different language origins, political constructions and cultural identities.
