Camilo is an artist, researcher and educator, or all that together. He is conducting an Exploration Residency to continue with the research and reflection for his master’s thesis, which deals with artistic graphic production in Buenos Aires during the end of 20th century. Camilo seeks to have an idea about the historical, social and Argentinean historiography to compare it with the situation in his country, Colombia, where he was educated as an artist and researcher.

ABOUT HIS THESIS Printmaking in Colombia and Argentina, comparative analysis (by Camilo Gutiérrez)

The project to be carried out is a research on the history of graphics in Argentina, its production dynamics at the end of the 19th century, how it began its imparting in university institutions and, finally, how graphic art is currently positioned in the arts. I also intend to know how is the teaching of different graphic languages ​​in Argentina and whether these methods have changed or not from those used in previous times, emphasizing whether these methods changed according to the political situation in the country. This investigation will be the final chapter of my thesis of the Master’s Degree in Art Education, in which I am conducting an investigation on the same questions that I will develop in Argentina. The purpose of this research is to be able to reconsider and recognize if we have made mistakes with the production and teaching of the graphic in Colombia, comparing it with a country of our own continent and with which we share some historical records.

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.
