SOMOS AUNQUE NOS OLVIDEN
Video Intervention Program
A project by Eder Castillo and Gabriel Escalante
May 15 - 30, 2020
Artists: Christain Jankowski (DE), Miguel Calderón (MX), Olaf Breuning (CH), Pablo Vargas Lugo (MX)
Curator: Gabriel Escalante (MX)
SOMOS AUNQUE NOS OLVIDEN is a video projection program done in collaboration with Tlatelolco Central. In it, international artists intervene public space, using the wall, and the windows of Building 5 de febrero as an audiovisual canvas. This historical building is located in the second section of the housing complex of Tlatelolco in Mexico City.
The initiative, more than an exhibition project, is presented as an alternative connection with art as a response to confinement. It works as a visual escape and metaphor for lockdown and invites us to look outside, at public life, urban landscape and what the experience of “being there” can provoke.
