Project by Paloma Ayala

” How does a world in constant search for progress and change, affects positively and negatively our present?

Decadence in a cultural sense understood as the inability or impossibility of promoting changes is the starting point for the establishment of the series of community interactions and the production of knowledge and representations. Through conversations and active participation of a community in a workshop, STOP DECADENCE! incorporates opinions about visions of the future for modern human settlements into an artistic research process.”
