Latin American Documents at the Study Center of MACBA

With Pamela Sepúlveda Arancibia: “Artwork or Document? Latin American Materials at the Study Centre of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACBA)”. In Art Libraries Journal, London, vol. 37, no. 4, 2012, pp. 15-20. 

For their special issue on collections of documents related to Latin American contemporary art, issued in the summer of 2012, the Londoner magazine Art Libraries Journal requested us to describe the highlights of MACBA’s holdings in this particular field. Among some other highlights, in this text we briefly discuss the collection of Argentinian Edgardo Antonio Vigo’s artist and mail art publications; the archive of publications of the group Nervo Otico, later transformed in Espaço N.O., in Porto Alegre, Brazil; and a good collection of Argentinian CAYC’s handouts and small publications.
