Finally, on my last day here in Buenos Aires, I managed to do one single thing from my list: I went to MALBA, the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires.
I’ve been there before, but it’s always a treat.
This time they had a great photo exhibition of German-Argentinian photographer Annemarie Heinrich.
But the main event was their fabulous, interactive exhibition Experiencia infinita.
One guy had this mask of light right in his face and was wandering around the rooms. I was really fascinated by him and took a bunch of pictures.
Another room was continuously painted white without end.
In the next one, a woman kept typing the interaction of the visitors on a projection… somehow involving us, and changing the way we behaved in the room, once we saw written on the wall, what we just did…
There was a guy who was standing in the middle of a room, with countless ropes attached to his body and clothes, moving in different directions and moving all the objects hanging on the ropes.
For some reason or another he had his dick out, which was probably why the room was so full of people. Art.
Another room had a man write all the names of the visitors on a wall, with the time they came in. Find me at 16h22.
Then, in order to leave, you had to pass a sort of human revolving door, dancers who created a choreography that let you through, or not, and that was reminiscent of demonstrations.
It was the perfect way to spend an afternoon – after another meeting with a friend had yet been cancelled… – and as the temperature had dropped significantly over night, just with the arrival of astronomical autumn.
