Figura del Quijote con Sancho Pansa

Between Personal Chronicles and Collective Memory


What do we remember? Are memories a reconstruction of the real? Are they built upon real facts or merely fictional stories? Is it possible to create a historiography based on personal narratives?

The exhibition examines the ephemerality of memories by portraying different methods, such as collecting material, tracing paths, recording or reconstructing oral histories. With María Linares (Bogotá / Berlin), Daniela Lehmann Carrasco (Santiago de Chile / Berlin), Ana María Millán (Cali / Berlin), Yoel Díaz Vázquez (La Habana / Berlin)

Additional programme: 5 June 2021, 11.00 – 14.00 h
Workshops in public spaces, with the artists María Linares, Daniela Lehmann Carrasco and Yoel Díaz Vázquez

The exhibition is part of the programme of Rethinking Conceptualism: Avant-Garde, Activism and Politics in Latin American Art (1960s-1980s)
