DSP Seminar

• Thu 30 06 2022 / 7 pm •
Film Screening and Discussion

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.

Maria Galindo is a feminist and founding member of “Mujeres Creando”. The collective from La Paz uses the street as a space for political communication and has made a name for itself primarily through the production of graffiti, for example with slogans such as "Disobedience, through your fault I will be happy" or "Woman, neither obedient nor reverent, but free, beautiful and crazy".

On 30 06 we will screen Ave Maria, llena eres des Rebeldía by Maria Galindo. The film was made in 2010 for the Principio Potosí project in La Paz. It documents a procession at the market of La Paz with the image and the deconstruction of the image Virgen del Cerro (Anonymous, Potosí 1720).
