AIDS Anarchive: Cultural Production Relating to the 'AIDS Crisis'
The Future of the Revolt | WorldPride Madrid 2017
The exhibition AIDS Anarchive: Cultural Production Relating to the “AIDS Crisis” in Southern Europe and Latin America. 1985-2016 takes cultural production associated with the “AIDS crisis” in southern Europe and Latin America as its starting point, focusing in particular on Chile and Spain. The project approaches HIV/AIDS not so much as a medical epidemic as a change in the visual, affective and economic paradigm, which has coexisted alongside a strengthening of neoliberal politics and the globalisation process.
The idea is not so much to hold an “archive exhibit” as it is for the archive itself to be established through the very act of being exhibited. Following three years of research and production of material, AIDS Anarchive is now being presented as an exhibition. The artist Carme Nogueira collaborated on designing this exhibition.
Some of the works exhibited in this collection include images that contain explicit sexual content.
