The exhibition can be seen at MACBA from 15 February to mid-July.
MACBA, Barcelona’s Museum of Contemporary Art, is about to host a new exhibition, titled 'Dislocated Archive', which focuses on the evolution of sexual dissidence, a subject that is “difficult to classify, unify and interpret in an organised way”, as the museum website itself states, before going on to claim that, “This precarious archive proposes an exercise that aims to create a space for the political memory and history through certain events and materials connecting different themes and formats: health and depathologisation, manifestos, graphic and visual production, sexile and the cartography of a distorted geopolitics”.
Lucía Egaña is the coordinator of the exhibition, which can be seen from 15 February to 13 July. In order to stage it, material from a number of public and private documentation centers in Barcelona has been taken as part of what is an "open and unfinished" exercise, since it tackles very recent issues on which perhaps we still lack a historical perspective. The project connects with other, similar experiences, such as Madrid’s ¿Archivo Queer? and compilations carried out by people based on their own life experience. Egaña, who was born in Chile in 1979, has a background in arts, aesthetics and documentaries and holds a doctorate in Audiovisual Communication. She researches and writes about themes related to feminisms and transfeminism, representation, postpornography, technology, open source and error.
