Argentine artist and activist León Ferrari’s “The Words of Others” confronts authoritarianism through a formalist deconstruction of language and media. At the heart of this exhibition is the artist’s 1966 performance and literary collage, Palabras Ajenas (The Words of Others), a defiant exercise in word association composed as a dramatic script, which had previously been staged only twice, in 1968 and 1972. Critical of Argentina’s military dictatorship, the Catholic Church, and the U.S. war in Vietnam, the work is freely composed of quotations associated with various historic figures, such as President Lyndon B. Johnson, Adolf Hitler, Pope Paul VI, and God, sourced from news wires, historical texts, and the Bible. For each performance, a contemporary choir of voices reinterpret the texts, speaking to the atrocities of war, the perils of totalitarianism, and religious representations of redemption and punishment. Ferrari’s visual collages depict provocative imagery that challenge aesthetic forms of political intervention, trauma, violence, and religion, accompanied by drawings expressing the fluid connection between gesture and communication. In his manifesto of 1968, Ferrari declared an ever-powerful call to arms for artistic political activism: “Art is not beauty or novelty, art is effectiveness and disruption...”
