Excursus and Never Say in Private What You (Won’t) Say in Public

Book launch with Juan A. Gaitán, Maricris Herrera, Mariana Munguía und Carlos Amorales

Excursus was conceived as a surplus venue of the 8th Berlin Biennale that expands the time and space of the exhibition. Developed by the 8th Berlin Biennale curator Juan A. Gaitán in collaboration with Artistic Team member Mariana Munguía and graphic designer Maricris Herrera, Excursus is a compendium of visual propositions made by the participating artists of the 8th Berlin Biennale, meant to reflect on the force and autonomy that images have today and the power they exert on our political imagination.

Never Say in Private What You (Won’t) Say in Public follows the intellectual background behind Carlos Amorales’ film for the 8th Berlin Biennale The Man Who Did All Things Forbidden. It is structured in eight chapters, which include drawn sketches, emails, and conversations during the rehearsals, the Ideological Cubism manifesto and documents on interventions in mass media.
