La rebelión

Violeta Ospina-Domínguez

La rebelión is a single-channel, syllabic video and is part of an installation of the same name. The title is inspired by the book by the philosopher Ortega y Gasset, La rebelión de las masas, found in a second-hand bookshop in Barcelona. The images were taken from my personal video archive: displacements between Bogotá, Barcelona, New York and La Coruña (2013 - 2015).

The installation is a poetic and political statement on the colonial wound of a public university system constantly threatened by privatisation in Colombia, and a defiance and disillusionment with the privatisation model of private (or public-private) education in Spain, the United States and the so-called global north.
