Beatriz Santiago Muñoz: Poetic Disorder
In the exhibition Poetic Disorder, artist Beatriz Santiago Muñoz challenges Western views of Puerto Rico, Haiti, and other locales whose histories are steeped in colonization, military occupation, and resistance. She brings together four film works that, each in their own way, address and embody the complexities underlying the notion of care. These four works develop a narrative of coexistence carried by imagination, emotions, and discrepancies. The cinematographic constellation created by Santiago Muñoz proposes a nonlinear, prismatic way of seeing the world, a plural reading that takes over from the single, disembodied vision promulgated by colonialism and Western thought.
