José Morbán

José Morbán’s practice attempts to make sense of their personal history and, more broadly, the history of the island where they were born and live. The artist’s work draws from archives, found photographs, documents and other memorabilia from the place now called Dominican Republic to create fictions that revise the Dominican collective memory and the figures who shape it. Morbán’s work explores political power and its physical manifestations, as well as the instrumentalization of media for political gain.
