From the photographic images of a specific space, located in a certain geography of the Province of Buenos Aires (Argentina), artists from India and Lebanon, who have never visited the location or know its history, construct fictional texts that are not necessarily related with the present of the place or with events of the past. They create exciting worlds that incite possible fictions.
With these new stories in hand, artists residing in Buenos Aires are invited to intervene in the space and develop site-specific exhibitions and interventions based on stories written from a distance.
Exhibition and performances commissioned for this project:
- INANNA’S METHOD By Florencia Rodríguez Giles & Alina Marinelli (Argentina) | about the text INANNA’S DOMAINS By Maya Zbib (Lebanon).
- HISTORICAL LINE By Sofía Medici & Laura Kalauz (Argentina) | about the text PROFETA by Abhishek Majumdar (India).
- Link video project: https://youtu.be/In_uoZA4bYo
The project UNKNOWN URBANITY was presented at the III International Dramaturgy Festival in co-production with the Fluorescent Platform and Vivamos Vicente López (Argentina).
