Event Description

“All have left the house, in reality, but in truth, all have stayed. And it’s not their memory that stays, but their selves…” – Cesar Vallejo

Join us for a talk with artist Seth Wulsin on Caseros Prison in Buenos Aires, seen through various stages of its demolition and occupation. Wulsin will examine the transformations of a decomposing emblem of modernist dystopia, exploring themes of architectural immanence, historical resonance and the human survival complex through the lens of the 16 Tons: Caseros Prison Project.

16 Tons was a direct action on the 22-story Caseros Prison building that sought to connect the scales of human perception and cosmic movement through the filter of demolition architecture. After five weeks of onsite work, 48 faces (aparecidos) spanning 18 stories shone from the prison at varying times of day. Over the course of the following year and a half, the building was demolished floor by floor, and with it the images.

Seth Wulsin’s work explores spaces between dimensions. He has shown in solo and group shows internationally, and has done artist residencies in Argentina, and Colombia. In recent years he has won Peter S. Reed and Thendara Fellowships. He currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and Bogota, Colombia.

Organized by Xenia Pachikov for Platform Programs. Kontakt@platformed.org for more information.
