La galerie de la Biennale

Four wooden constructions welcome the visitor to what looks like a modern agora. On the walls are photographs of political graffiti, religious processions and historic monuments, while the screens offer over 400 interviews with passers-by in the streets of twelve Latin-American cities. These conversations recorded in Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Guatemala, La Paz, Managua, Mexico City, Panama, Santiago, San Salvador, São Paulo and Tegucigalpa bear on American interventionism and the notion of democracy, and modes of government the countries concerned are currently trying out with varying degrees of success. The decision to show "The Good Life" within a forum indicates that what it has to say is directed at a very large audience: like a documentary film maker out to influence his interlocutor or his audience, Carlos Motta offers new ways of reliving the world’s great political events. He is also showing "Untitled (Graffiti Cuts)" at La Sucrière.

With the support of Youcast.
