ERICK BELTRÁN.

DOCUMENTA FIFTEEN.

Museum für Sepulkralkultur, Kassel

18.06 – 25.09.2022

 

 

Kassel has an unusual institution in the Museum for Sepulchral Culture, which explores the culture of dying, mourning, remembering, and burying. Its permanent exhibition presents items related to sepulchral culture, primarily in the German-speaking world, from the Middle Ages to the present. On the lower floor, as if descending into a crypt, visitors encounter coffins, hearses, clothing, mourning jewelry, gravestones, and tomb sculptures.

 

For documenta fifteen, the Mexican artist Erick Beltrán, who lives and works in Barcelona, Spain, addresses the power mechanisms that define, evaluate, classify, reproduce, and disseminate images and discourses. Together with a local research group, he addresses the question “What is power?” and presents the results in the form of a large-format installation with prints and sculptures
