Encounters, Together Apart

Liz Ingram & Bernd Hildebrandt
Guest speakers


“The differences between societies, nations and cultures is based upon a seemingly unproblematic division of space, on the fact that they occupy “naturally” spaces which are limited and fragmented. The representation of the world as a collection of countries, as in the most world maps, see it as a fragmented space, divided by different colors in diverse national societies, each rooted in its proper place, is an example of this.

In addition it is also taken for granted that each community embodies its own distinctive culture.Representations of space in the world are remarkably dependent on images of break, rupture and disjunction which need limits, borderlines …frontiers bringing us to deal with issues of space and place, along with some related concerns such as location, displacement, community and identity.

Today we have the honor to be with us two guest speakers who have navigated in their lives and in their art through different territories, rather than crossing borders, building bridges between them. During these years, their work together has been very productive and has resulted in numerous large scale installations utilizing fabric, paper and structures nationally and internationally.”

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
