In this text, Mercedes Vicente interviews the artist Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, who talks at length about the progression of his oeuvre between 1989 and 2001. Manglano-Ovalle elaborates on his investigation and questioning of the meanings of cultural terms, and on the social dynamics of relationships that serve as the basis as strategies for addressing the politics of identity and difference in his works. Specific works discussed include Assigned Identities, Sereno, Tele-vecindario: A Street-Level Video Installation, The Garden of Earthly Delights, El Niño Effect, Le Baiser, Climate, FM, Alltagszeit (In Ordinary Time), and White Flags. Manglano-Ovalle discusses how, in these projects, he has addressed the construction of identity through politics and genetics, citizenship, and urban space and territory. Manglano-Ovalle also considers how the conflation of concepts of “community” and the construction of “the Other” leads to a redefinition of community. He also reflects on his engagement with architect Mies van der Rohe’s Modernism, and with climate change as a metaphor for transformations in politics and nation-states. Throughout the course of the interview, he weighs his engagement with social and political questions and his positioning in relationships with museums.
