Project Description

The Relic of a Socialist Past is an artwork based on the remnants of social conquests that are being dismantled through processes of privatization of the state’s fundamental functions.

The body of those who fought and believed in the idea of the social, conceived as pertinent to civil society, becomes an historical artifact: a relic.

The undeniable failure of political socialism has generated an indiscriminate dismantling of the ‘social body,’ transforming the state in a corporate entity.
