"Provincia 53. Art, Territory and the Decolonisation of the Westerm Sahara" is a selection of art and culture related to the region known as the Western Sahara, reflecting on the conflict from an aesthetic, educational and political interpretation 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-scale diagram with a timeline and a central matrix in which texts and artworks in a variety of media appear together with other visual documentation in order to present the history of the Western Sahara to viewers.

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