In 2017, Human Activities and the plantation workers’ art league Cercle d’Art des Travailleurs de Plantation Congolaise (CATPC) celebrated the Repatriation of the White Cube. A quintessential White Cube, designed by OMA, was built and inaugurated on a former Unilever palm oil plantation in Lusanga, DR Congo. With the establishment of the White Cube, the mechanisms through which plantations underwrite the art world are reversed. With the repatriation of the White Cube, Human Activities and CATPC aim to bring back the privileges associated with the art world to one of the plantations that has historically funded the establishment of western museums, and prove that artistic critique on economic inequality can effectively reverse that inequality.
