Admiralty Sound Expedition Report

In Tierra del Fuego, where the Atlantic meets the Pacific, land and sea are not so much interwoven as fractured—splintered and shattered. At the southern terminus of the Andes, it is as if the mountains are using the remainder of their geological force to dive… … Keep Reading

Más Allá del Fin/Beyond the End #1

Like Ensayos, the periodical Más allá del fin/Beyond the End is an attempt at communicating the experiences that the program has nurtured, explored and continues to seek. The periodical has a shifting shape that responds to the different occasions and matters of concern that summon its presence. The first issue accompanied the exhibition that took place in Paris at Kadist Art Foundation in June 2014 and took the form of a newspaper that brought news of the end of the world (Tierra del Fuego) to Paris, and its metropolitan, “Old World” audiences. Beyond the End is edited by the art historian Carla Macchiavello and the curator Camila Marambio.

En un futuro próximo Ensayos dará luz a una serie de ediciones que incluirá: libros de referencia (de autores internacionales que serán traducidos al español), un compilado de ensayos críticos y/o creativos de autoría de integrantes de los ensayos #2 y #3, y un periódico cuya impresión y distribución será determinada por su necesidad.
