Guided tour of the exhibition Remote Extinction Detected with curator Maria Ptqk

Curator, cultural critic and researcher, María Ptqk will guide us through this exhibition that shows artistic projects from different angles and deals with worlds that have disappeared or are on the verge of extinction.

14:30 to 15:30


The journey begins with a work inspired by pre-Columbian calculation systems that fell into oblivion with colonisation, and ends at ground zero of environmental ruin, the forests of the Amazon, whose traces will one day speak of the civilisation that saw them perish. Between these works, which allude to extinctions - one sunk in the past, the other probably in the future - others unfold: real or imagined, technical and ecological, human or not. What they all have in common is that, like the ruins, they condense many times and meanings at once. Each extinction is an encrypted message that a disappearing world leaves for the next.
