Anti-futurismo Cimarrón is a collaborative exhibition adopting the Anzalduian idea of artistic work as healing. The show features 13 activist and community artists, individuals and collectives who were selected under the curatorship of Afro-Caribbean decolonial philosopher Yuderkys Espinosa-Miñoso and Chilean-born visual artist Katia Sepúlveda. The group is invited to be part of a collective creation process based on their reflections, from their experiences and different enunciative places, on a series of texts and contexts that announce the disappearance of Europe and its world project based on the conquering ego.
The whole exhibition process encompasses a year-long theoretical-practical seminar/laboratory, which began in 2021 with virtual sessions once a month. There, the following questions were debated and negotiated: What would the world be like if Europe (as a trope) disappeared? What would it be like if it had never existed? How has time been lived outside the historical time of European modernity?
