Movimiento Armonico Simple
The Colectivo Maski presents an exhibition centred on the Monument to the Flags, built in southwest Bogota in the 40s as an optimistic commemoration of pan-American integration. More than 60 years later, the flags no longer fly and the airport that probably justified the exhibition’s location has been replaced. These obsolete monuments now stand abandoned, a poignant reminder of stumbling modernity.
Espacio Odeon, Carrera 5 #12c-73. Until June 27.

Catherine Poncin: archives d’un present
With a sensitive look at Colombia’s conflict and its victims, Poncin presents images of disappeared Colombians, forcing the viewer out of the anaesthesia that so often clouds our view of the conflict..
