CaldodeCultivo is a Spanish-Colombian art collective based in Buffalo, New York. Founded by Unai Reglero and Gabriela Córdoba Vivas in 2006, our work focuses on subverting the impositions, exclusions, and violence of neoliberal policies in people’s life. Transiting from aesthetical to political strategies, we aim to amplify the struggles, resistance tactics, and survival strategies of those who are excluded from “development” but are the primary victims of it.
Through context-specific projects, which involve the affected communities, we address conflicts of a global nature that manifest in the local realm. We use different artistic languages —from public installation to video— to create devices of counter-information, agitation, and provocation, that work as mechanisms for altering the quotidian and as catalysts for dissent.
CaldodeCultivo has been nominated for the Vera List Prize for Art and Politics (2018); our work is part of the permanent exhibition of the National Museum of Colombia; and we are currently working for Creatives Rebuild New York.
