FLOWERS OF EVIL

WEB-VBKOE-Flowers Illustration: Imayna Cáceres, Planta de Coca, 2017


FLOWERS OF EVIL: NATURE AND THE COLONIAL WOUND
brings together works by Carla Bobadilla, Imayna Cáceres, Edinson Quiñones, Sandra Monterroso, Sofi Utikal and Mariel Rodríguez to rethink relationships between body, nature, politics and technology. It calls for a reflection about neo-colonial forms of plunder and exploitation of nature. Through historical analysis, autobiographical perspectives and poetic metaphors, the artistic positions react to different stories of cultural appropriation and claim for a recognition of the role that indigenous people’s lifestyles, traditions and knowledge have for the conservation of biodiversity.
