TODO LO PROFUNDO AMA EL DISFRAZ
Everything deep loves the mask


pensamiento colectivo en exhibiciones de arte contemporáneo
Collective Thinking in Contemporary Art Exhibitions. Currently taking place in Buenos Aires.

Inspirations:
the educational turn
instituting otherwise




Todo lo profundo ama el disfraz (Everything profound loves a disguise) is a group of people that visits contemporary art exhibitions currently in Buenos Aires. It takes place once a week or twice a month and each meeting has a duration of two hours. The seminar stands as a group to "reflect together" while building a plot collaboratively. It works as an alternative to the traditional guided visit given by cultural institutions. The group tries to encourage approaching art from a playful way, overcoming prejudices and fears of the contemporary art world. Its objective is to use artworks as points of departure for a broader analysis of the paradigm they are inserted in and the possible relations and connections they can have to other fields and topics. Therefore, we will try to activate unconscious knowledge that we tend to forget, for the experience of thinking and feeling together. Heterogeneous backgrounds are thought to enrich the experience. We will visit a number of renowned art institutions and museums, as well as private galleries and independent spaces in Buenos Aires.

Everything that is deep loves the mask is a quote from Nietzsche´s thinking.
Also interpreted by Gustavo Cerati, Argentinean musician, and poet:

Todo lo profundo ama el disfraz es un grupo de visitas a exhibiciones de arte contemporáneo en la ciudad de Buenos Aires para adultos y jóvenes adultos. El mismo tiene una frecuencia de dos veces por mes, y una duración de 2hs aproximadamente cada encuentro.

El siguiente taller, seminario o grupo de reflexión se propone como una alternativa a la tradicional visita guiada. Su objetivo es combatir el miedo a acercarse al arte contemporáneo mientras que propone activar reflexiones en torno a ideas artísticas e ideas que exceden a la obra en sí, convergiendo o divergiendo hacia otros campos. De esta manera, se buscará activar conocimientos dormidos en nuestro inconsciente y transformar la experiencia de visitar una exhibición en un ejercicio de atención, disfrute y molestia, como así también ocurre en la experiencia de lectura. Explotando la dinámica de grupo, intentaremos sumar las fuerzas de todos los participantes para enriquecer el pensamiento colectivo.
Se visitarán museos e instituciones como el Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, el Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, el Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, la Fundación Fortabat, la Fundación PROA, como así galerías privadas y espacios alternativos de la ciudad.

William Carlos Williams
This is the trap — either what we seek is within the bounds of the understanding or beyond it. If outside it does not exist for us, much less for our imagination; if inside it is bounded by that and must be so defined before it can be conceived — this precedes all further progress.

I know noble accents
And lucid, inescapable rhythms;
But I know, too,
That the blackbird is involved
In what I know.
