The Happy Uselessness of the Artist

At the beginning of this year, Carlos Amorales was invited to participate in a contemporary art biennial in Michoacán. Autonomous communities in that region and artists engaged in these communities gave his idea of the role of an artist and art a new perspective, which was very inspiring during the pandemic lockdown and beyond. How the project for the biennial changed and developed, and what kind of imaginary strolls he took, will be presented and discussed with Adrian Notz and the participants of the Autumn School of Curating.

The text The Happy Uselessness of the Artist written by Carlos Amorales, translated to english by Tiosha Bojorquez Chapela, was the topic of discussion.
