False Heroes Must Be Forgotten: Rotunda Magazine conversation with Thiago de Paula Souza
Carolina Martínez speaks with BAK 2018/2019 Fellow Thiago de Paula Souza about his role as a curator of the 10th Berlin Biennale for Rotunda Magazine.
From the article:
Last month finished the latest Berlin Biennale, developed under the curatorial concept “We don’t need another hero”, where the concepts of power that we drag from imperialism were questioned and where certain discussions were put on the map. The curatorial team was composed of five curators, among them the Brazilian Thiago de Paula Souza, who ends his contract in October of this year, who also asks “What does it mean to have a group of black curators if the institution is so white? What will happen to the issues that we are discussing now when we leave?”
