As a whole, the works compiled in this volume constitute an unconscious autobiography of Colombia’s current aspirations and fears. They reveal that the nation is at a crossroads in terms of its cultural identity, caught between socio-political commitment and poetic escape, and offer tools to engender both economic and cultural ideas and prejudices. Over 60 artists and designers form a map that traces, challenges, and vindicates what it means to live in Colombia, embodying its contemporary historical memory. The initiative was conceived by Hugo Herrera Tobón, Moniek Driesse, and Annelys de Vet to further encourage a discussion of the nation’s complex cultural identity.
