Saturday 21 December, 16:00–17:00 at A Tale of a Tub.
Join us for a free guided tour by artist Milena Bonilla to experience her solo exhibition Eden Hotel. During the tour Bonilla will focus on establishing parallels between Luxemburg’s herbarium species and various aspects of current political urgencies happening at a global level, as well as talking about her particular interest in Luxemburg’s main work The Accumulation of Capital.
The exhibition Eden Hotel by Milena Bonilla revolves around the legacy of Polish Marxist theorist and revolutionary socialist Rosa Luxemburg (1871-1919). In response to key ideas articulated in her extensive body of work, the exhibition draws on Luxemburg’s passion for botany and her keen observations of natural phenomena, such as changes in the colour of sunlight as a marker of place and time. In Eden Hotel Bonilla projects a worldview in which the natural world and revolutionary politics are not only deeply intertwined, but utterly inseparable.
