The itinerary proposed in “Scenographies of Power” – that pierces through the diplomatic space, the airport, contested borders and court process; reveals how in the spatial materializations of the exception, the aesthetic becomes political. These spaces of exception are interrogated by the different artists, who work with that which takes places in them, using disruptive propositions to critically represent, record or reactivate them to allow alternative readings of the political framework that hosts each of them.
