It is in its nature - a painting is a unique, hand-made object that contains within it a uni (...)

I never get tired of insisting that Regina Galindo is one of the strongest artists of the generation that emerged in the mid-nineties. She attracted an unusual amount of attention when she appeared on the Guatemalan art scene with a performance in which she hung herself from a bridge ten meters in the air, reading little poems which she later scattered to the wind. Her intentions have always been at a higher level, maybe because she is so young or because she is often consi (...)

The Alchemist Downey starts magnetically manipulating video images at the end of the sixties, at the same time as the massive launching of video equipment, although his work predates that. At the beginning of 60’s, in Paris, he connects with the kinetic-art promoters establishing an intimate relationship with them. His constant query of the “object of art” brings him to privilege the process more than the objective result. Since his first sculptur (...)

a mobile project on semi-bourgeoisie and social geography In the debate on expatriation, most feared by nation states are the satellite dish and the internet, in other words, any facility aiding the construction of a "virtual identity".

The project presents how expatriates become the "authors" of their own identity, and (...)

These impressive numbers, however, contrast with the minimal presence of digital art, a fact that is completely unexpected i (...)

Africa in the Venice Biennial history Art made in the African continent was exhibited in the 13th Venice Biennial for the first time in 1922. The 'Mostra della scultura negra' was the only parallel exhibition on view during that Biennale , but, strangely, none of the artists who participated were named.

Personal interview about how B.Elder became a filmaker and how started his long life friendship with My first encounter with Stan Brakhage was a momentous occasion in my life. I had been studying philosophy to that point, but a year or so before I first met him,I decided I did not want the life of an academic -- and there is little else one can do with a Ph.D. in philosophy.
