Sofía Dourron


Sofía Dourron (b. 1984, Argentina) is an independent curator, researcher and writer based in Buenos Aires. Her current work researches the relationships between Latin-American decolonial perspectives and post-humanist philosophy, the notion of the decolonization of the unconscious, ecological thinking, and artistic practices and imaginations. She also researches art institutions in Latin America, focusing on the paradigms of the museum as a colonial device, searching for alternative genealogies that escape the modern universalist canon.
