Here and Now at Museum Ludwig. Anti-colonial Interventions with Adriana Dominguez


The exhibition Here and Now at Museum Ludwig. Anti-colonial Interventions (8 10 to 05 02 2022) opens up other perspectives of knowledge on the museum's permanent collection. We accompany the exhibition by taking an anti-colonial stroll through the permanent collection of Museum Ludwig together with the participating artists from Latin America. Which Latin American artists can be found in the collection? How do artists of Classical Modernism - usually from Europe - reproduce the exoticizing view of the global South? Which works need to be critically questioned, which offer counter-models? Eurocentric and institutionalized perspectives of knowledge are deconstructed and made accessible via new sensual forms of education.

The Mexican art historian, curator and author Adriana Dominguez lives and works in Zurich, where she founded la_capsula together with Elena Rosauro in 2017. The independent and experimental curatorial project provides a dialogue between artists and cultural workers from Switzerland and Latin America. Topics such as environmental issues, feminism, geopolitics, gender and decolonialism are discussed and emerging artists are given a platform to present their contemporary art. In the seminar Adriana will present this project as well as the works of the artist Daniela Ortiz in the exhibition of the Museum Ludwig.

In the seminar, the participating artists will talk about their interventions in the museum and enter into a dialogue with the visitors. Participants are invited to intervene themselves and continue the dialogue on social media under #MLInterventions.
