Exhibited at “Without Legal Value” (Big Sur gallery)
Video documentation of a performance held at the Historical Museum Carlos Idaho Gesell, a museum dedicated to German immigration in Argentina and to the foundation of the town of Villa Gesell. In the video, we see a young member of the Bolivian immigrant community based in Gesell, Wilfredo, walking though the museum in the dark, using a flashlight to observe the different memorabilia. The video points out the tensions between local cultural memory and untold immigration stories as a way to oppose to amnesia and obliviousness, which is often imple- mented by local governmental policies. The work is an open question about how to challenge colonial imaginar- ies through the use of a museum’s collection in a self-reflexive way.« volver
