Edition 2021



Here and now, we are traversing an unrepresentable pandemic time. Strange times, testing the very concept of humanity. We can rethink everything. Feminism is a rhizomatic theory and practice that also addresses questions of the post-human and production of the common. A theory of affection and the body, of the public affair, the transformation of social relationships, and of the home as an observatory for the analysis of a new economic policy of life. A feminism that merges with the profound questioning of the contemporary consequences of global capitalism and that emerges to observe notions of community, the breakdown of anthropocentric models and human exceptionalism. We want to rethink, with an attentive eye, latent meanings in artworks made in other contexts. Each object, each photograph, each film in this exhibition generates a magnetic field that creates friction with everything that approaches it. Each one provides material from which to rethink possible forms of the world.
