DSP Seminar

Film screening and Lecture


The Decolonial Studies Program (DSP) deepens the contents and topics of the exhibition Potosí Principle – Archive in an accompanying seminar. Forms of (neo-)colonial exploitation, labor disputes in art, and forms of resistance against capitalist-induced environmental destruction will be discussed. Guest lectures and readings, among others by the curators Alice Creischer and Andreas Siekmann as well as the artists Elvira Espejo Ayca, Stefan Mörsch and others, complement the seminar.

Miguel Hilari, filmmaker from La Paz, Bolivia, is a guest at the DSP Seminar. Together we will watch his film Bocamina. The film shows the colonial city of Potosí. At the pit hole faces of miners coming from work. At school, children look at old pictures from the mine. Pictures from other times. We also show Aysa, an early film by the well-known Bolivian director Jorge Sanjinés, which tells the story of the hard and unforgiving life of the tin miners.
