Art is a way to recognise truths and myths, says Robert Andrew who explores colonialism, dispossession and the third space we occupy when trying to understand the coalescence of the past, present and future. We agree. Why not ask why?

The practices of Philjames, Jumaadi, Peter Maloney, the performance artists in ‘Political Acts’, Shigeru Ban and Richard Tipping demonstrate the power of art to challenge ‘the narrative’ by being a question rather than an answer.
