The project series CHANGING PLACES / ESPACIOS REVELADOS transforms empty buildings through artistic interventions to highlight social cohesion in cities. Artists from Latin America and Europe explore the types of communities that can grow from a city’s “blind spots.” CHANGING PLACES / ESPACIOS REVELADOS provides new space for the arts and new spatial experiences for residents.
The series began in 2014 in Buenos Aires with the development and presentation of interventions in two districts. A new project took shape in the heart of Santiago de Chile and was set to open on April 7, 2016. CHANGING PLACES / ESPACIOS REVELADOS continues in Bogotá.
A key principle in developing the individual projects at each location is collaboration between artists and neighborhoods and between public and private organizations, who are brought together in a shared work process on the initiative of Siemens Stiftung.
