»Archive in Archive: An Encounter between the museo de la democracia and nGbK Archive« with Eva-Christina Meier

Livestream here on this page

In 2003, the exhibition »Alltag und Vergessen - Argentinien 1976/2003« was presented at the nGbK. It addressed the questions of continuity and discontinuity in historical processes, examining an artistic production that was committed to social events but did not allow itself to be ideologically appropriated by them, in the context of an Argentina plunged into a profound crisis almost 20 years after the last dictatorship.

This project was the last in the institution to date to deal with Latin American cultural production, symptomatic for our team of the invisibility of the Latin American continent in Europe. Now, in the midst of another new wave of social unrest and repression that plagues the continent, the Museum of Democracy invites the artist Eva Christina Meier to take stock of the context and the situation before and now, 18 years after the proposal. The talk, moderated by Valeria Fahrenkrog, will be based on the nGbK archive and the book »Chile Internacional«, which was produced in connection with this now historic exhibition.
