Swab on Paper

Curated by Carolina Diez-Cascón, for this edition Swab on Paper wants to challenge the limit of paper through illusion, an optical illusion that plays with the constant existence of two realities, a flat reality of the essence of paper, which will be invaded by means such as plastics or fabrics that will deceive this dimension.


Under the umbrella of this parallelism, the 6 proposals of the program travel between two worlds, or truths, the conscious and the unconscious, the inside and the outside, the tradition and the capitalism, the atheism and the devotee, the local and the immigrant.
