Arbeitstage – Potosí Principle Workshops at HKW October 8th-9th


download workshop programme in ->Spanish, ->English, or ->German

Artists, curators, theorists, and “correspondents” will come together during the workshops which are part of the „Potosí-Principle”- exhibition to discuss and elaborate following topics: How can we describe colonial as well as contemporary global contexts with Marx’s principle of “primordial accumulation”? How and where is cultural hegemony being produced? Which artistic interventions or practices and which dissenting votes can undermine the standards of a “universal museum” within an internationalised world?
With the participation of Thomas Kuczynski, Silvia Federici, Peter Linebaugh, David Riff, Tom Flynn, Anthony Davies, Timothy Hart, John Barker, Edgar Arandia, Maria Galindo (Mujeres Creando), Elvira Espejo, Eduardo Molinari, Isaías Grinolo, Matthijs de Bruijne, Sonia Abian, Konstanze Schmitt, Christian von Borries, Zhibin Lin and Sun Heng (Migrant Worker Museum) as well as the curators of the project.
