A ‘first report’ on the activities of the CATPC, an association that attempts to rethink postcolonial power relations within the global art world. Initiated in 2014 by Renzo Martens in the context of his artistic research project Institute for Human Activities, together with René Ngongo, a Kinshasa-based biologist and environmental activist, this cooperative continues to develop independently and to redefine the relations between art, agriculture, industry, and value creation.
