At the end of 2019 I started an investigation around the lexicons of art history produced in the last century. Then I had a question: How to expose the hegemonic structure present in the “History of Art”? Investigating the correlations of “art history” to access a kind of violence (and co-option) that structures a eurocentric “official narrative”, and which has circumscribed over the years the production of concepts, works and events based on its own history.

Concepts such as modernity, originality, avant-garde are widely present and reveal an internal need to also tell a possible history of art based on the forms of power that structure the society in which art and artists become an instrument of distinction and stratification .

The attempt to dissociate the history of european art and its surroundings from the idea of an official narrative of art is the decolonial exercise for the world to be able to rescue the existing diversity that was silenced, or as said by the Brazilian art critic Frederico Morais, it is necessary to "excavate the future", but at the same time proposing new ways of structuring multiculturalism that puts an end to the “official history of art” by replacing it with a circular cosmology formed by a set of narratives made up of various voices.

To produce the book, I installed myself in the Pompidou library to investigate in its available collection the presence and absence of what conjectures this possible history of european art. After collecting approximately 170 terms, which were later erased, was formed an empty book that may or may not be rewritten.

Published by the catalan publisher No-Libros, the book was produced in an accessible format and was launched during ARCO, in Madrid.
