In this session of a symposium held at the Guggenheim as part of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, curator Pablo León de la Barra introduces the event, describing the meaning behind the title, La Universidad Desconocida. Argentine semiotician Walter Mignolo then gives the keynote lecture, Coloniality: The Darker Side of Western Modernity. Mignolo addresses the danger of a single dominant narrative, and explores the legacy of colonialism and the geopolitics of Latin American conceptualism.
