Visual artist Kiluanji Kia Henda excerpts work from his exhibition A City Called Mirage, shown at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in Brooklyn from June–October 2017. The work considers the birth, life, and death of cities. It challenges the use of Dubai, a city built in the desert without thought to history or environmental impact, as a model to project neoliberal desires in places like his hometown, Luanda.
