    The work of Hans-Peter Feldmann (Düsseldorf, 1941) focuses several decades of careful classification and reordering of the sensible world through the image. With systematic thoroughness, Feldmann classified traces of the society through trivial and banal images and objects, recovering the subjective and narrative power of the image in the viewer. The curator, Helena Tatay, introduces the exhibition, held at the Museo Reina Sofia (September 22, 2010 to February 28, 2011).

    The exhibition Principio Potosí. How Can We Sing the Song of the Lord in a Foreign Land? (Museo Reina Sofía, May 12 - September 6, 2010) included, together with the European curatorial nucleus, a forth component, headed by Bolivian sociologist Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui together with El Colectivo, a self-organized group of cultural action and critique. This dissident component, which represents a break with the discourse presented in the exhibition, exposes, on the basis of the Principio Potosí Reverso book-catalog (Museo Reina Sofía, 2010) the fissures and contradictions of the models established by the project. From the vantage point of Andean thought, the authors present, in a visual and intertextual dialogue with a tripartite structure, the subversions and subalternities of colonial painting in its relationship with the communities it belongs to, and their rites, their structures of relationship and knowledge which break away from Euro-centril categories.

    Re-opening the Palacio de Velázquez after more than five years, the Museo Reina Sofía's new exhibition venue presents the first comprehensive retrospective of the work of Antoni Miralda (Barcelona, 1942). Over more than four decades of production, the Catalan artist's work has been characterized by a continuous and ironic demystification of the art object, joined by an anthropological analysis of the systems of consumption and ritual and ethnological presentation of the codes that articulate contemporaneity.

    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).
