During his residency at La Limonera, Constantin Hartenstein researched on LGBTQIA+ history in the Canary Islands; particularly how queer imagery occurs within the Guanches culture, during colonial occupation, the Franco era as well as contemporary post-capitalism. His project resulted in a sculptural intervention which focuses on the relationship between the perception of Tenerife’s history, how the public engages with remnants of totalitarian monuments on the island and how those could be read outside of their historical context.
How can we re-think productivity, values of community and solidarity after gaining awareness of the colonial past?
