Extractivisms: Operations and Practices

The curatorial proposal of Galería Réplica (UACh, Chile) is an artistic device that introduces the idea of „expanded extractivism“ to approach extractivism as a set of transversal operations and practices. Through intercrossing works and discourses, Extractivisms: Operations and Practices seeks to raise a political discussion about the extractive transformations on the horizon of the New Digital Deal. We no longer experience the world through industrial objects or technical images, but through data and invisible images. Our location, health, habits, affections, bodies, social and urban connections, economic and communicational transactions are recorded, recognized, interpreted, stored and circulated in corporate and governmental databases. The virtual museography on Galería Réplica’s website finds convergences between artistic investigations by Ignacio Acosta, Regina de Miguel, Felipe Rivas San Martín, the CENEx collective, the TRIMEX collective, Celeste Rojas, María Jesús Schultz, Paula Baeza, Cristian Ochoa, Felipe González and Claudia Pool, and the theoretical investigations by Claudio Celis and Martín Arboleda. The purpose of this project is to intervene politically at a time in which the world is convulsed with the mutations of capital accumulation.
