About the Book
The exhibition Guido Ignatti: Setup problematizes the entire art system. The naturalness of the exhibition of painting is upset; norms for the preservation of nature, here art, are established; the message of the street is imported in the format of the inner wall; access to one of the galleries is blocked, making us imagine what we cannot get at. Interferences in the very nature of the museum space are, in a sense, an attempt to decolonize its parameters—which is something Guido Ignatti has been doing intensively within the logics of the art world in Buenos Aires. Politics, in this context, is the administration of meaning, a practice of resistance that displaces and condenses functions, that redistributes them to give shape to a different form of knowledge. His exhibition turns over to the museum and to the viewer responsibility for finding, in his enigmatic proposals, their own roles, their own questions, their own desires.
