BYOB Tropical Paris 

Opening July 12th - 18h

7 Rue de Aubriot 75004 - Paris

The relations between Paris and Latin America have been mediated by art since more than 2 centuries. Institutions in Latin America traditionally tend to implement a French cultural model while in Paris last vanguards linked to aesthetic abstraction and kinetic art was carried out by Latin American artists. Groups like GRAV and Disidentes opened the doors to start an aesthetic infiltration in Paris, but it is no longer necessary “trip to Paris” to be linked to the European art circuit, today cultural infiltration is possible through the Internet.

Continuing this labor and permanent interest in highlighting the local art movement and the rich aesthetic production conceived especially in Latin America, the curators Rolando J. Carmona and Miyö Van Stenis would present in one of the most iconic cities for worldwide culture, BYOB Tropical Paris. The event will be held in the heart of the traditional neighborhood of Parisian galleries, where through an open call and pre-selection of works will exhibit on 12 July this year, a platform for plural and international dialogue, which allows to insert the European circuit, solid career artists of our continent. This project aims to build a new chapter between France and Latin America. In this case the intention is to establish a dialogue between the production of a group of Latin American artists and some key players in the European Media Art.

The exhibition will be a pre-launch of a curatorial platform in Europe dedicated to promoting the production of art done by Latin Media from the 60s to the most recent and innovative projects focused in new technologies. 

My German homework

While I was in Paris, on an exchange semester, we had a class exhibition called secrets, curated by me.

I exhibited these spy photos I took from all the people from my class when I thought they didn’t see me photographing them.

I

I was on the metro, going back home, when I saw a guy, one of those people with very bony cheeks. I saw him take off at Raspail and then saw another man that looked completely the same as the first one go in. They had the same clothes as well.

We were both on the couch, my knee was hitting the pillow. The pillow was hard, that’s why it was annoying me. In between moans I threw it on the floor violently.

While letting off almost silent groans, he grabbed my neck and turned my head away with his child-like hand.

I can remember a couple more scenes like these. That one when my teeth were chattering like crazy, the one after my birthday and the one when he had hugged me from behind.

And I don’t remember anything else.

That was the happiest time of my life. 

1 note • 2:07 AM

Work I did to the entrance exam for Akademie der bildende Künste in Vienna. I had 24h (3 x 8h) to do anything I want in order to persuade the jury to take me in. I decided to find advice on the internet, typing how to get into an art school. 

The first day I researched the web, mostly google and youtube, put the links in one document and wrote some comments.

The second day I was rereading what I have found I drawing the main conclusions about what I ought to do to get accepted.

Finally, the third day I presented the conclusions and made a pin board out of the table I was working on.
