As collaborators, Baker & Felsenthal are interested in the experimental and the experiential. They seek to make work in conversation with place, and in the spirit of exploration. While in residence at ´ace, Alex & Lily embarked on the beginnings of a new project, reading and engaging with the translated work of several venerated Argentine writers and developing new work inspired by and in conversation with their work. In Buenos Aires, they engaged with a new mode of experiential research, immersing themselves in the literary tradition of the city by visiting historical places such as the Villa Ocampo, the Recoleta Cemetery, as well as numerous sites of contemporary artistic experimentation and discovery.

The Latin America's Paris

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. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

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.
