Milena Bonilla - The Hour Before Sunset
Artist Milena Bonilla took correspondence written by revolutionary socialist Rosa Luxemburg from prison in 1917 as a starting point to conceive an exhibition in which she explored the potential of the archive and historical interpretation for the creation of collective memory. In the exhibition, political and affective resonances were combined with botanical knowledge and imagery. This book comprises a critical reflection by the exhibition’s curator, Juan Luis Toboso, a conversation between Bonilla and curator Isabeli Santiago, an essay by researcher Vivian Ziherl, the reproduction of Luxemburg’s original letter, and visual documentation of the presentation.
