Curating Dematerialisation: The Archivo Juan Acha as Curatorial Object

Joaquín Barriendos


The aim of the workshop is to discuss the forms of circulation and exhibition of documents/objects related to Latin American conceptualist art and non-objectual art of the 1960s and 1970s. For this, we will take as a starting point the exhibition “Juan Acha. Revolutionary Awakening“, which was exhibited at the University Museum of Contemporary Art of Mexico (MUAC) in 2017.

Joaquín Barriendos is Associate Professor at UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico). He writes on the intersection of Latin American art and modernist aesthetic cosmopolitanism.

The symposium on conceptual art from Latin America "Rethinking Conceptualism: Avant-Garde, Activism and Politics in Latin American Art (1960s-1980s)" has been postponed and will take place from 25 to 26 March 2021 at Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut.

Before this meeting, Katerina Valdivia Bruch, artistic director and curator of the project, has started an online programme with workshops and monthly reading sessions.
