"Archivo Sur" represents an opportunity to approach a region that has gone through deep social, political and cultural transformation. The language used by these artists: video, film, diaporama, has a precise purpose in the image world, has a realistic character, adventurous and visionary, to build up a "cadavre exquis" of what Latin American identity may represent in our days.
