This exhibition, dedicated to the work of Alejandro Cesarco (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1975), brings together pieces in a variety of media –photographs, videos and text-based works– that proposes reflecting on the construction and experience of learning, as well as on the processes associated with memory, perception and language.

Among them is Index (An Educator), a piece that belongs to a series of works that began with the same title in 2000, which shows Cesarco’s interest in elaborating indexes of imaginary books. To paraphrase the artist, these indexes are conceived as “forms of writing that in turn make up archives of readings”, and they are the product of his interest in classifications, registers and taxonomies, as well as in the processes of constructing and preserving memory. In Otros ejemplos recientes, the artist focuses on questions such as the uses and functions of pedagogy and literacy, in addition to relationships between mother tongue, bilingualism and the complicated ecosystem that generates this situation of “in-betweenness”.

As an adjoining space alongside the exhibition, Alejandro Cesarco is constructing an area to consult writings and authors linked to his practice as a publisher. Among other publications of his, it includes a selection of books published within the framework of Art Resources Transfer (A.R.T.), an independent non-profit organisation committed to documenting and disseminating the work of artists to an often disregarded audience in the circuit of cultural consumption. 

Exhibition co-produced by Artium Museoa, Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basque Country and Maumaus/Lumiar Cité (Lisbon).
