Caracascase in Sala Mendoza
A result of the Caracascase: Informal Urban Culture project, Urban-Think Tank curated and organized an exhibition in the Sala Mendoza Gallery. There, the work of 17 artists, researchers, and documentarians presented alternative views on the rapidly changing metropolis. The participants were both local and international, including work by Ignacio Arcaya, Diego Rojas, Alexander Gerdel, Pablo Souto, André Cypriano, Keisuke Fukuma, Shui Endo, Marco Poletto, Guy Lafayette, Armando Silva, Tulio Hernández, Nicolás Bancilhon and María Alejandra Padrón, Marjetica Potrc, Liyat Esakov, Sabine Muller, Andreas Quednau, Sabine Bitter, Helmut Weber, Feliz Madrazo and Elena Chetchencko.
The exhibition itself makes no attempt at final solutions, but rather attempts to understand and generate discussions on unsanctioned “informality” as a cultural force. After travelling to the Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, the show was repackaged into a book, “Informal City: Caracascase,” published in 2004.
