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

11/10/2010

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

Hasta el 6 de Septiembre de 2010 estará en el MNCARS de Madrid la exposición Principio Potosí. ¿Cómo podemos cantar el canto del Señor en tierra ajena?, un insólito experimento de cómo el museo puede dejar de ser un espacio de circulación de obras artísticas para convertirse en un centro de producción crítica de nuestra sociedad. No sé si es un hecho aislado en España pero el trabajo de Alice Creischer, Max Jorge Hinderer y Andreas Siekmann es una inteligente y sobrecogedora indagación en las relaciones que se dan entre la ciudad de Potosí del siglo XVI y la conformación del capitalismo en los siglos posteriores.

CORRECTION: this article suggests all Bolivian participants turned their back on the project. This is more than wrong. The Bolivian writers and artists participating in this project and catalogue are even the strongest fraction in terms of national refrence and are (in alphabetic order):

Luis Victor Alemán V., María Isabel Álvarez Plata, Edgar Arandia, Gabriela Behoteguy, Elvira Espejo, María Galindo / Mujeres Creando, Teresa Gisbert, Luis Guaraní, Max Jorge Hinderer, Jorge Hurtado Gumucio, Fátima Olivarez, Jorge Sanjinés, Luis Tapia

However, one important aim of this project can be stated as to avoid reactionary national categories.
