Depois do fim da arte _ Cripta

Cripta [Crypt] is an occupation project for Sala Antonio, at Vermelho, proposed by the research group Depois do fim da arte [After the end of art], coordinated by Dora Longo Bahia, which investigates the role of the contemporary artist through artistic interventions.

Cripta seeks to create intersections between concepts and forms discussed during the first half of 2019, in which were read Achille Mbembe's Critique of Black Reason and Necropolitics, Giorgio Agamben's The Use of Bodies and Susan Buck-Morss’s Hegel, Haiti, and Universal History. Were also watched the films Class Relations, by Straub-Huillet, Sugar Hill, by Paul Maslansky, Hyenas, de Djibril Diop Mambéty, Life of Jesus, by Bruno Dumont and Play, by Ruben Östlund. The proposal presents a work in progress that comprehends the simulacrum, the doubles and the zombies as crucial figures of the current social experience, unveiling the intersections between the displayed films and the explored texts, in a plastic response to the theoretical discussions established in the previous semester.

The title refers to the phrase “The Black man [...] is the only human in the modern order whose skin has been transformed into the form and spirit of merchandise - the living crypt of capital” (Mbembe, Critique of Black Reason) and points to the group's interests in discussing the relationship of art with social, economic, historical and political issues.

In Cripta, Depois do fim da arte is formed by Anna Talebi, Ariédhine Carvalho, Bruno Ferreira, Cássia Aranha, Eloísa Almeida, Felipe Salem, Gabriel Ussami, Gabriel Xavier, Igor Vice, Ilê Sartuzi, Karol Pinto, Lahayda, Leandro Muniz, Marina Lima, Murillu, Nina Lins, Rosângela Pestana, Terenah, Thais Suguiyama, Thais Teotonio and Victor Maia.
