The One Minutes Series Islas Inútiles is curated by Bar None and consist of eight Intimate portrayals of Dutch Caribbean identity by visual artists and filmmakers. What has remained unseen that needs to be seen?
After the Spanish "discovered" the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, they dubbed the islands “Islas Inútiles”, Useless Islands. The Dutch Caribbean, including Saba, St. Eustatius (Statia), St. Maarten (SXM) and their diaspora are clumped together even though they differ culturally from each other. And even though officially, colonialism is over, the culturally mis- and underrepresentation of these members of the Dutch Kingdom has left the term “Islas Inútiles” as a whole still ringing true.
