These videos are made with records of exhibited persons. They were photographed, measured, examined, and compared. This “analytical-scientific” process was used by sciences like anthropology and ethnography to endorse evolutionist discourses, establish race categories, and generalize racism and suprematism directly in connection with skin color and physical appearance. The images were animated by an AI with small movements that restore the “humanity” of the exhibited people. Next to the monitor, an aluminum plate presents an excerpt from scientific racist texts of the time.
