GUIDED TOUR • Solo artist Marcus DeSieno • Geography of Disappearance

On June 9th, from 14:30 to 15:00, Marcus DeSienowill give a guided tour of his solo exhibition at the Festival Center.

American artist Marcus DeSieno’s series of wet plate emulsion images, ‘Geography of Disappearance’, critically examines the border landscape of deliberate oppression of immigrants trying to cross the US-Mexican border. His project exposes the power structures deeply embedded in the American landscape and history through a deliberate and concise use of 19th century wet plate technology and lith printing. With this project DeSieno wants to foster a conversation about the risk of dehumanising immigrants as a global issue that only escalates as conflicts, wars and climate catastrophes close in on our communities.
