The Potosi Principle

Please join Afterall at the new Central Saint Martins College campus on Wednesday 8 February 2012 for a discussion of the controversial exhibition, 'The Potosi Principle' with its curators Alice Creischer, Andreas Siekmann and Max Jorge Hinderer. The exhibition, on the circulation of art and wealth during Spanish colonial rule, will be considered in terms of the correlation between the concurrent global circulations of money and art.

The discussion will be moderated by one of Afterall's co-editors, Melissa Gronlund. To find out more, please visit the listing on the Afterall Events page. To book a place and for access details, please write to

This event is presented by Afterall in collaboration with Iniva and Central Saint Martins Research: Exhibitions, Histories, Practices. Supported by The Goethe Institut.
