Alexander Alberro on Principio Potosí for Texte zur Kunst

The Silver Lining of Globalization
On “Principio Potosí” at the Museo Nacional Centro
de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid

Capitalism’s cradle is not located in Manchester but in
today’s Bolivia. The eventful history of the mining city
of Potosí exemplifies the main features of the modern
exploitative economical system: the origin of the concept
of the market can be derived from here as well as the
iconographic sources of the almighty dollar symbol. The
silver mines in the city once served the Spanish colonial
empire as the foundation of imperial power, bought
dearly with the slave work of the indigenous people.
An exhibition in Madrid, the former center of the
Iberian global empire, investigates by art works from
Potosí and how these patterns continue in today’s globalized
economy.
