To take stock of the past year, Artforum asked an international group of artists to select a single exhibition or event that most memorably caught their attention in 2020.
Kader Attia has selected "Errata" - Ariella Aïsha Azoulay's exhibition at Fundació Antoni Tapiès, Barcelona.

Ariella Aïsha Azoulay (Fundació Antoni Tapiès, Barcelona)
Artist, activist, and writer Ariella Aïsha Azoulay has built a guide to unlearning the false certainties of the Western imperial agenda. By inscribing the viewer in a narrative told through films, books, photographs, and artifacts, her exhibition “Errata” aimed to enter into and reverse colonial knowledge. Nowadays, racialized postcolonial voices rise everywhere, so much so that our so-called democracies meet them with fear and repression. We indeed live in societies that have not been decolonized. Azoulay’s work is deconstructing the wall that separates histories from their repair.
