Latin American art Insight into a world-famous collection The other avant-garde

Tools for Utopia: Selected works from the Daros Latinamerica Collection is an exhibition of works from the 1950s to the late 1970s by artists from Brazil, Venezuela, Uruguay, and Argentina: Gego, Hélio Oiticica, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Jesús Rafael Soto, Mira Schendel, Liliana Porter, Julio Le Parc, and Ana Mendieta. Created when many Latin American coun-tries were in conflict and ruled by dictators, these works Concrete, Neo-Concrete, Conceptualwere means of transgression. They were not only created as reactions but as artistic counter-proposals to totalitarian systems: signs of genuine engagement and experiments that included in-gredients of social and political utopia. The exhibition and the accompanying publication are conceived as tools, re-ferring to the efforts of the artists to transcend representa-tion and become active agents for societal transformation. By displaying historical alongside contemporary work, and by presenting historical manifestos alongside recent con-versations with the artists, the project examines the ways in which the urge to actively inhabit the present is contin-ued, further complicated, and questioned by artists of the following generations. Tools for Utopia asks to what extent such Latin American art movements acted as catalysts for the cultural, social, and political imagination. What do these ideas and hopes stand for today? The exhibition and cata-logue expound bold visions of art, politics, and subjectivity that are particularly relevant for today's tensions in Latin America and beyond.
