Provincia 53. Art, territory and decolonization of Western Sahara is a selection of art and culture on the region known as the Western Sahara which reflects on this conflict from the aesthetic, educational and political meanings of the concept of territory.

The exhibition is divided into three conceptual and spatial areas: Sahrawi Diagram, Jaima Cultures, and the Narratives of Exile. Artist Sofía Jack has created a large diagram with a timeline and a central matrix where texts and works of art in a variety of media are displayed together with other visual documentation in order to bring the history of the Western Sahara closer to the audience.

Provincia 53.brings together more than 50 national and international artists and collectives through more than 100 objects, texts, documents, archive material and contemporary artistic projects.
