Haiti’s Ghetto Biennale :

After the Haiti Revolution, the formerly enslaved peasants had three tools for their “counter-plantation” position: the Kreyòl language, the Lakou system (a subaltern land management system) and the belief system and ritual practices of Vodou—a triumvirate of linguistic, territorial and cultural resistance. In December 2009, through an international open call, the Atis Rezistans, the Sculptors of Grand Rue, invited artists to explore what potentials these radical tools—Kreyòl, Vodou, and the Lakou—have to offer to the contemporary world.
