Fabiano Kueva: THE HUMBOLDT EFFECT: Dispossession. Collections. Repatriation. The Geopolitical Life of Objects and Documents

The Alexander von Humboldt Archive is an artistic research project that intervenes in institutional settings (museums, archives, libraries, and universities) to challenge scientific-intellectual authority, patrimonial-artistic authenticity, and geo-biopolitical legitimacy—products of XVII century scientific expeditions. THE HUMBOLDT EFFECT is a dialogue on the relations between word - body - space - ritual, which generates a critical space and a common language.

Presentation: Fabiano Kueva, Ana Rodríguez, Miruna Achim, Malena Bedoya, César Martínez
