Y No Había Luz: The Fall of The Host 3D Model
Experience this interactive 3D model of a sculpture by the Puerto Rican theatre company, Y No Había Luz, titled “The Fall of the Host” which represents the first governor of Puerto Rico, Luis Muñoz Marín.
This piece, part of the exhibition “El Circo de la Ausencia (Absence Circus),” reflects the history of Puerto Rico, when its governor, “the host,” transitioned the island into a colony of the United States. By looking back on Puerto Rico’s past, this piece draws critical questions about Puerto Rico’s current political status, most importantly, who benefits in a colonial relationship?
Listen to an exclusive interview with one of the artists, Julio Morales, as he explains the concept behind the sculpture and raises attention to a conversation happening all across the island post-hurricane María: Who is responsible for the struggles and injustices being faced in Puerto Rico? And what kind of political identity could Puerto Rico have in the future?
