Agitprop from the Andes: redundant, fixated on power relations and commodity flows

Kultiversum.de prefers the show upside down: not on the political left and without theory. “This exhibition is decidedly leftist and thus commits all failures the leftists commit. It is fixated on power relations and commodity flows, too theoretical and redundant. With a tremendous verbal effort it only comes to the conclusion that the world is pretty iniquitous. But that doesn’t matter: the fascinating cosmos of images that is created by the show, speaks its very own and eloquent language – all without words.” – by Oliver Heilwagen, in German language

“Diese Ausstellung ist entschieden links und begeht alle traditionellen Fehler der Linken. Sie ist auf Machtverhältnisse und Warenströme fixiert, theorielastig und redundant. Mit einem immensen begrifflichen Aufwand kommt sie nur zum Schluss, dass die Weltordnung verdammt ungerecht ist. Doch das macht nichts: Der faszinierende Bilder-Kosmos, den die Schau versammelt, spricht höchst beredt seine eigene Sprache – ganz ohne Worte.”
