Latifundismo: phantoms of plantation and extractivist landscapes
14.07.2021 l Anca Poterasu Gallery
Join us for a sharing session with Colombian-born, Hong Kong based curator Inti Guerrero, who will present a wide range of art practices from Latin America and Southeast Asia from the 1970s to the present as entry points the interconnectivity between exploitative labour, political violence and the ecological crisis. From artists addressing the societal complexities found in sugarcane plantations in Brazil and the Caribbean, and their direct link to the history, and inheritance, of slavery, to practicioners contesting the effects of both monoculture and extractivist enteprises in Bolivia, Malasya, and the Philippines, and their neocolonial embodiment.
