Event overview

In this event Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia) and Joshua Chuquimia Crampton will give a live music performance.

Chuquimamani-Condori’s releases are knotted with traditional Aymara knowledge and praxis, including the notion of the dead “re-speaking” with the passage of each song as well as taypi or the center where “spacetimes co-mingle” as an attestation of nonlinear time and inseparability. Her sounds emerge between the horizons of American west coast post-minimalism as well as autochthonous Andean Aymara music, and her recent LP, ORCORARA 2010 (2020), originally debuted at the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement 2018, interweaves acoustic guitars, droning synthesizers, piano and spoken word.

Her brother Joshua Chuquimia Crampton is an LA-based Aymara guitarist, composer and multi-media artist whose most recent releases include 4 (2021) and The Heart’s Wash (2020), a full-length project of solo guitar compositions that are as meditative and wandering as they are viscerally raw and immediate.

Chuquimamani-Condori: Oscollo


Together the Pakaxa Aymara artists composed the score to their first film commission ‘Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter’ which Haus der Kunst has co-produced with Auto Italia and Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève and will be exhibiting in the South Gallery from the 8th -16th October.

On Saturday 9th October there will be a screening of the film at 7pm, followed by a performance lecture by Chuquimamani-Condori who will share research on embodied cultural heritage that informed the making of it.
