Amérique latine transrégionale
16 of February of 2021 3.00pm (french time)
Presentation of the conferences cycle :
This conferences cycle offers a series of crossovers between the themes of the German Centre for Art History (DFK Paris), such as architecture, transculturality, art and political science and digital arts with specifically Latin American questions. The aim is to create a dialogue between these lines of research of the institute and the various themes related to the history of art in Latin America, past and present. This event is part of the “Travelling Art Histories. Trans-regional networks between Latin America and Europe” launched by Lena Bader and Thomas Kirchner.

Within the Smells of History
Within the Smells of History connects the personal and collective experience of history to the olfactory sense, as smell awakens the memory of lived experiences. Within the Smells of History is also the title of my latest installation in which I have inserted conceptual smells into twenty military cannons from the collection of the Museu Histórico Nacional in Rio de Janeiro, creating olfactory time tunnels between the era of European colonization to the present social and political life in Brazil.
