White man got no dreaming..., 2008.
Michael Rakowitz will re-exhibit drawings made for the Sydney Biennale which respond to contemporary Indigenous life in Australia, creating new associations with the history of visionary architecture and its failures. In collaboration with a number of individuals and groups, Rakowitz has constructed a full-scale contemporary version of avant-garde Russian artist Vladimir Tatlin’s model for Monument to the Third International (1919). Tatlin’s tower, which was to have been made of spirals, was never built; today, it is a symbol of revolutionary and visionary thought. Rakowitz’s Tatlin tower, White man got no dreaming, is a rebirth of collective hope, as it recycles discarded materials from old houses, soon to be demolished, owned by the Aboriginal Housing Company in Redfern, Sydney.
