Friendly Fire: Anibal Lopez at Documenta 13

  • Cannonball 1035 N Miami Ave Miami, FL, 33136 United States

In this lecture and subsequent open discussion, Jose Falconi will explore Aníbal Lopez’s contribution to Documenta 13Testimonio (Testimony)—a performance in which the artist interviewed a contract assassin from Guatemala and opened the floor to questions from the audience. At the center of this action, the ethical problem of capitalizing on social violence rubs up against the claim for artistic autonomy that we have inherited from the avant-garde. It is with this thorny problem that Falconi will address and engage the audience.  

Free and open to the public
