REPUBLICA COLAPSADA VOL.2
BabyCastles Gallery. New York. 2017
República Colapsada Vol. 2 is curated by Helena Acosta and Violette Bule. The exhibition is placed in the field of the relationship between art and politics. It creates a critical reflection of the current political and humanitarian crisis the country is facing. On the one hand, the curators examine how art responds to the current political intersections, and on the other hand, they create a visualization platform of contemporary Venezuelan history.
In this way, participating artists develop themes such as corruption, the despotic exercise of power, strategies of humiliation and demoralization of the population, blind submission to power, violence, dismantling of infrastructure and institutions, among others.

LiTE-HAUS welcomed a trio of Venezuelan art-activists who enlightened us about the volatile socio-economic situation in Venezuela. In three rooms we exhibited three different curatorial themes. Curator Helena Acosta, and artists Violette Bule and Gina Monc – all born and raised in Venezuela – now live in the USA where they have the freedom to speak out against the corruption they have witnessed. Using various mediums and technology, and working with multiple artists and activists, they presented a clear view of the history of the Venezuelan economic and social crisis.
