Presentation of The Potosí Principle by the curatorial team, Alice Creischer, Max Hinderer and Andreas Siekmann. The Potosí Principle is a research, publication and debate project organized by Museo Reina Sofía (Madrid, May 12th - September 6th, 2010), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin, October 7th, 2010 - January 3rd, 2011), and Museo Nacional de Arte and Museo Nacional de Etnografía y Folclore (La Paz, February-May 2011). The Potosí Principle questions modernity by narrating it from the vantage point of the other, introducing the process of European emancipation as a cycle of global domination and exploitation which, having started in the 16th Century, is still ongoing.
