Tras los pasos de los Hombres de Maíz / After the steps of the Cornmen: Halt! Alto!




Under the global storm of finnancial markets, there are human beings. To propose contemporary art as a "safe inversion" inside of capitalism, is a simulacrum, a parody, a joke or one capitalistic bussiness more? or all this together? If simulacrum distinguish itself from ilusionim because of the absence of a claim of "faking" our eyes,  and is defined by its funcionality, we can answer: functional for whom? 

"Halt!", Chemnitz, Doc AC / 2008.
