Visualizing Research at the Carnegie Museum of Art

Museum Studies Intern at the Carnegie Museum of Art – Spring 2019

Destierro

1992

“Destierro is a book-object in which a ritualized game that transgresses the everyday is photographed. The condition of ‘exile’ lies in the conscience of the body and its transience.” [1]
