AMBOS MUNDOS is an open, collective, and continuous project that started in 2012. Since then, we have summoned and incorporated new artists. We propose alternatives that engage with new generations of artistic production, reinforcing the cultural panorama with constant renovation, new paradigms, and the practices of contemporary poetics.
Villa Epecuén is the name of a touristic Argentine village that is now in ruins. It is located in the Adolfo Alsina partido, 540 kilometers from the city of Buenos Aires. The thermal waters of lake Epecuén have a high level of salinity, similar to the Dead Sea, which have generated a growing interest for wellness tourism. In 1985, a flood caused by the rising waters of the lake submerged the city completely, forcing the evacuation of its residents. Twenty years later, the water level began to descend, and the ruins of the city have become a tourist attraction, providing a landscape for photographers, musicians, and cinematographers. Within the desolated landscape lie the ruins of architect Salamone’s slaughterhouse, which was completed in 1938.
