Mosquito art attacks
By taking into account all the ethnographic material obtained during course of my my PhD fieldwork, Andres Ramírez and I decided to design a new mosquito-kite and with it, produce a kind of ‘mosquito art attacks’ in different places across the city. With this idea, we wanted to go beyond the critique of the discourse behind traditional health campaigns, and to try to re-think how mosquitoes and dengue are understood to interact with people and how the kite interacts with people.

This phase of the project would not have been possible without the economic support of the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland and the Horniman Museum through the “Horniman Collecting Initiative.” Many thanks to them!
