Resumen del Libro
Cantos/Cuentos Colombianos is the most comprehensive exhibition of contemporary Colombian art ever shown in Europe. Ten widely recognized Colombian artists present a previously unknown world of images and experience worthy of international attention. With great formal and substantive rigor, the artists deal with their country and its troubled past and present through installation, video, photography, objects, performance and sound works. The book includes extensive photo-documentation of the artists studios as well as in-depth interviews. Four prominent Colombian thinkers of varying political persuasions discuss political, social and cultural issues facing their country in enlightening and thought-provoking essays.
