Sic transit gloria mundi (2018) Studio Dries Verhoeven (Commissioned)
Graphic Design for Sic transit gloria mundi, Monument to the end of Western hegemony, 2018
ICW ES & ZN
At a time when controversy surrounds colonial memorials, the West’s most recent dominance is beginning to show signs of collapse. Russia, and Asian economic giants are breathing down our neck. In Africa, China is fast becoming the new imperialist power and Islamic nations, thanks to migrants living here, exert a growing influence on Western culture. This calls for a new vision of our role in the world.
Sic transit gloria mundi is co-commissioned by SPRING Festival Utrecht (NL).
