    This essay explores Afro-Colombian artist Oscar Murillo’s practice and process as an instance of ‘fantastic critique’. Animated by an ongoing exchange between the artist and the author about art & human rights, trade and place, protest and action, including the 2021 General strike in Colombia, it aims to situate emerging notions of justice in the intersection between artistic practices and ethical-political acts, asking if and how art can engage with questions of the violence of race and class in the twenty-first century.
