And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?
A joint exhibition of Kunsthalle Wien and Wiener Festwochen

“And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?” writes the Chilean poet and activist Cecilia Vicuña in her 1971 poem Precarious.

The exhibition curated by Miguel A. López reflects on the rationale of exploitation, the fast-paced mining of raw materials, and environmental destruction as a colonial legacy. It tells the story of indigenous struggles for collective survival and celebrates encounters defined by solidarity in their resistance to misogyny, imperialist violence, and state oppression. Some of the contributions are a specific response to the Covid-19 pandemic, not just as a health crisis, but also as one of ecological and social justice.
