museo de la democracia shows the temporary collection of a fictional museum. This imaginary institution seeks to reflect through the positions of several artists on recent developments in latinamerican politics and society, exploring the progressive erosion of its democracy. By trying to show the relics of democracy this exhibition speculates with the preservation of a species in risk of extinction: If democracy were a ruin, what information and goods would belong to its collection?
The project will include performative, audiovisual, visual, and participative contributions by artists based in Germany, Latin America and Europe.
