Scenographies of Power seeks to disclose, register and reveal the implications of the physical space and architectural articulations to the construction of the scenarios that not only stage our contemporary political apparatus but also become witnesses of such power structures. Scenographies of Power is an ongoing research that has already produced diverse projects. One of them is the exhibition submitted here that proposes a reflection on the spaces that materialize the “state of exception” and a critical reading of the typologies that conform these spaces of exception. This exhibition aspired to claim the spatial articulations that make possible to institute and enforce the state of exception as a tool of power wielded by contemporary political structures. The itinerary proposed in the exhibition — that pierces through the diplomatic space, the airport, contested borders and court process; reveals how in the spatial materializations of the exception, the aesthetic becomes political.
