Estela blanca
2019
Instalación | Fotografía

Estela Blanca re-examines the historiography around the economic and social footprint that the exploitation of rubber left in the Amazon , while suggesting a starting point to understand how extractive capitalism was consolidated and extended from South America to other territories of the global south. In her book The Extractive Zone, the cultural critic Macarena Gómez-Barris affirms that extractive capitalism –the economic system that reduces regions of ‘high biodiversity’ to goods– was first installed in the Americas during the colony, transforming natural resources like gold, silver, wood, oil and rubber in global products. According to Gómez-Barris, in its different waves –colonialism, imperialism and the most recent neoliberal globalization– extractive capitalism has not only taken possession of territories belonging to indigenous and Afrodescendants communities, but has also sequestered ancestral and collective knowledge, violently reorganizing life on the continent. The show includes different mediums like installation, objects, and and a photographic essay.
