Summary:
An exhibition that includes works by modern and contemporary artists, as well as works and documents of historical value. The sample is comprised of drawings, paintings, installations, video and photography. Despite the differences between the media and time period in which these works were produced, all converge in a peculiar relationship with the past and human evolution. Far from considering history as a collection of facts stored in our memory, the exhibition "Olinka, or where movement is created" (inspired in a project of Dr. Atl from the 1940's, which envisioned the construction of an international city of culture called Olinka), imagines history as an unstable territory, in constant movement, with the possibility to materialize, evoked or reinterpreted it. Artist included in the exhibition: Dr. Atl, Nairy Baghramian, Ross Birrell and David Harding, Mariana Castillo Deball, Kate Davis, Thea Djordjadze, Susan Hiller, Nahui Olin, Paulina Olowska, Manuel Rodríguez Lozano, Vivian Suter, Tercerunquinto, Danh Vo and Elisabeth Wild.
