The Fifth Income (2015)
The project was developed as a research residency in Panama through Lastro Centroamerica, a program conceived by critic and curator Beatriz Lemos. It was an experiment focused on four keywords: economy, speculation, self-surveillance, and urban development, considering the political landscape of the country a few weeks before the Summit of the Americas, as well as the presence of the Brazilian multinational Odebrecht in most of the urban infrastructure works in the country. Visualizing the history of installation of neoliberalism in Latin America, a plan of visits, practices, and captures was carried out. Videos, images, unsolicited social hearings, actions, and texts contrast the possibility of abundance with the decolonization of capital. The title The fifth income encompasses the series of works that began to be developed during the residency, alluding to the process of returning control of the Panama Canal in 1999 to the Panamanians, among other coincidences.
