El Colgadero 1st Edition: San Victorino
Project by Colectivo Mezcoliche
Artistic Intervention in public space
Plaza de San Victorino, Bogotá D.C. Colombia
This project proposes to rethink the social dynamics of the public space of Bogotá, Colombia through the activation, in non-institutional approaches, of the cultural processes in the public space of the city.
It is an artistic intervention in the form of a clothesline where objects, knowledges, experiences, services and everything that can be exchanged in this context are “hung” and taken down. El colgadero is an allegory of the clothesline, it is a rope that invites exchange: someone picks up something and in return offers something else, resulting in dialogues between the people who inhabit the city. The rope works as an object that creates a place to appropriate, where citizens can initiate a more significant and closer relationship with the space they constantly use.
El Colgadero earned Convocatoria Bota (Bota Call) awarded by the Art Department at Los Andes University, that funded the project.
