A Proposition by Montserrat Albores Gleason

An independent curator and writer based in Mexico City, Montserrat Albores Gleason will present a Proposition that considers how curatorial practice can intervene in the triangulation of law, power, and the state to reveal potential modes of action and participation in civil society. Her lecture will be followed by a film entitled Der Wille zur Macht, by artist Pablo Sigg, which narrates the history of Nueva Germania, a colony founded by Elisabeth Nietzsche (sister of Friedrich) and her husband in the Paraguayan jungle, exploring their claims to the land and the complex culture that sprouted around and through their settlement. Gleason is an independent curator and writer. In 2007, she cofounded PETRA, a curatorial and research project in Mexico City, and recently founded the editorial project Frédéric. Gleason writes for and is the author of Misfeasance?, which looks to artwork, philosophical thinking, and historical record to explore notions of legality and illegality beyond definitions established by the state.
