RIJKRALLPA is a non-profit organisation located in Lima (Peru) and Lausanne (Switzerland), which aims to promote pre-Columbian cultures in Western societies through artistic exhibitions and ludic activities. For this,
we work in an interdisciplinary team, made up of current research specialists and artists, thus developing a discourse of both artistic and scientific outreach.
Likewise, the projects we develop are part of the "Decolonialising Arts" movement, which aims to value and communicate pre-Hispanic cosmovision practices before the arrival of the Spaniards, in the beginning of the XVI century in South America.
We work, therefore, hand-in-hand with Peruvian artists who produce, following traditional techniques, the objects for the exhibitions. Thanks to our souvenir shop, we offer them as well a window for the commercialization of their products among a wider public and the valorisation of their works.
