In English, Demonyms are Capitalised

Art and geopolitics. How do we imagine, without seeing it, the work of an artist based in Luanda? What do we expect from a German painting? In this series of works I point out a series of demonyms from different nationalities, associated with words such as artist, painting, sculptor... found in art publications from different periods. The series seeks to question the importance of the artist's nationality when interpreting his/her work and show how these labels operate in its perception – often unevenly depending on the cultural policies of each country – in the current art system.
