    Film projection and talk with the artist Milena Bonilla and curator Juan Luis Toboso

    The film "I am Life and Life is Beautiful", presented in three chapters in the exhibition "The Hour Before Sunset", by Milena Bonilla, curated by Juan Luis Toboso, will be screened on Sunday, followed by a conversation between the artist and curator.
     
    Based on a conversation between the artist and the dancer and herbalist Shelley Etkin connected with Rosa Luxemburg's herbarium, the filmic piece travels through the three memorials dedicated to her in Berlin, with the aim of looking for some of the plants portrayed in his botanical notebooks, while rescuing the memory of its violent end, crossing body, botany and history, "in an attempt to unveil the intangible fabrics of patrimony."
