Can the working class benefit from art, rather than fall victim to it through gentrification? In his provocative new documentary, Renzo Martens radically examines his own presence within a social experiment set on a plantation in the Congo, drawing attention to the often overlooked links between colonialism and the art world. At the centre is the intriguing story of Mathieu Kasiama and a group of plantation workers, who portray themselves in clay.
