Artist and Curator Ramiro Garavito has been invited by KIOSKO to carry out research in the Minga Utopia project.
“I am interested in exploring the utopian character of the llikllas produced by an existing indigenous community called Laymi. This community is located in the highland region north of the city of Potosi, Bolivia. I am interested in exploring their shapes and designs as visual metaphors able to contain the principles and foundations for a better life, whose unique feature is the integration of all the elements of life on planet earth, setting the same value for each from them.”
Ramiro Garavito, Cochabamba, Bolivia, graduated in philosophy and from the School of Fine Arts in Caracas. Curator of SIART Biennal, Bolivia. Art critic. Professor for History of Art and Philosophy. Various publications analyising contemporary art, video and performance in Bolivia.
