Anarchivo sida

The exhibition Anarchivo sida (AIDS Anarchive) is the result of a process of research and production by the collective Equipo re (Aimar Arriola, Nancy Garín and Linda Valdés). It takes cultural production around the AIDS crisis in southern Europe and Latin America as its starting point. The project tackles HIV/AIDS not only as a medical epidemic, but also as a change of visual, affective and economic paradigm in parallel to the consolidation of neo-liberal policies and the globalisation process.

After three years of research and production of materials, Anarchivo sida is presented as an exhibition at Tabakalera with the collaboration of the artist Carme Nogueira designing the show. The exhibition address the classic nature / culture articulation through three issues: the historical trend of dividing humans from animals; the cultural dimension of death; and health, understood as the convention by which some bodies are considered normal and others sick.

Overall, the exhibition feature content from the mid-eighties to the present. It deals with materials that have never been assembled together: artistic productions, photo and video documentation on performances and activist actions, posters and videos of prevention campaigns, press clippings and other materials. Similarly, the exhibition is accompanied by a full programme of activities aimed at different audiences.
