Summoning Simon Bolivar’s spirit in the exact places of the liberation battles across Colombia two hundred years ago, Bicentenario reveals the contemporary social rituals that perpetuate the ongoing violence residing deep within the political unconscious. Simon Bolivar’s legacy has become a mix of political mysticism, unquestioned doctrine and enigma — or perhaps a curse that has fixed itself in the collective imaginary of an entire continent. It is this curse that Bicentenario seeks to invoke, and perhaps exorcise.
