MAMA presents Is There Any World to Come?, Caetano’s (BR) first solo exhibition in the Netherlands. As scientists predict the end of the planet, Beyoncé’s celebrates black feminism during prime time. Are we really facing the apocalypse, or are we experiencing the last gasps of the patriarchal world, as we know it? In a video and sound installation created especially for MAMA’s showroom, Caetano evokes such a sense of impending obliteration.
Caetano designs situation-installations that, using light, sound and performance, implicate current political an technological issues. For his project at MAMA, Caetano explores the breakdown of existing systems as a fertile ground from which marginalised groups can emerge. We all have different backgrounds, skin colour, and privileges, but global consumerism seduces us to forget these disparities, and that not everybody has access to the same benefits, funds, or geographical locations. In realising this, we should ask ourselves: can we understand that which we have not experienced?

At MAMA, Caetano shows us the dystopia of a global society verging on collapse. Barricades installed in the space oblige the visitor along pre-determined paths, leading to a group of Bluetooth speakers engaged in an uncanny, noisy conversation, a mirror trembling with globalised bass sounds (dub, reggae), and a body dancing inside a dismantled LCD screen.
