With the support from Stadt Dietikon
Mabe Bethônico and Jonathan Ospina

curated by Dietikon Projektraum

The exhibition Lessons & Parables inhabits the contested spaces of memory by looking at hegemonic narratives of history and the traditions of songs of remembrance. Mabe Bethônico’s work analyzes pedagogical material used during the military dictatorship in Brazil and proposes new readings for the banalization of violence in such images. Jonathan Ospina presents a video-essay on the musical expressions of Chocó — in the pacific coast of Colombia — and their role in the production of memory and resilience.
