M.E.T.

A graphic narrative that describes a revolution. An estimation of the colonial footprint of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City, is calculated by the recollection of stolen objects that are hoarded by this cultural institution, tracing back their origins and histories. Based on an ecofeminist perspective, this endeavor starts by analyzing the labels of objects. The act of branding, classifying, and categorizing them is a new layer of appropriation, one that is violent and hidden in plain sight. As we dismantle structures of power and visualize the many scales of extraction performed, we understand the relationship between nature, gender identity, and its exhibition as demonstrations of culture. White supremacy and the patriarchy hides behind paintings and romantic landscapes. By creating new images with excerpts of art we are reclaiming their freedom as individual objects that do not need to adhere to the whitewashed western version of history. The movement is designed to blend into the fabric of the museum and its aesthetic so that it can begin from within. Sculptures that seem part of the exhibition are placed within the American Wing. A Loudreading begins.
