In the constant flow of the neoliberal world, bodies and objects move in an unstoppable cycle of consumption. Potentially, everything becomes a commercial product in a game of fetishization that hides its modes of production and its discarding techno-capitalism, while maintaining strategic invisibilities in order to perpetrate itself. We propose dedicating an afternoon to discarded objects, so that by simply shifting our way of looking, we can reverse the flow of the useless and the surplus.

We will be working with electronic circuits from basic components and their interaction with the waste material generated by exhibitions at the Study Centre. A way of exposing the Museum as another contributor to the fetishization, production and discarding of bodies and objects. We’ll get the rubbish moving and create a feeble dance, a rowdy and noisy horde jumping out of filthy bin bags and into the white cube of the well-informed.

If you have any question, feel free to contact us on 93 481 79 05 or by email at pei [at] macba [dot] cat.

By presenting a story of a victim of violence in Colombia, I am calling on the memory of pain which all human beings have, here or anywhere else in the world.
