galería parásito/… presents Ideological Graffitti by artists Carlos Motta. Ideological Graffitti documents political graffiti on the streets of several latin american cities from 2005 until 2010. It is part of the project The Good Life/La Buena Vida, a multi-part video project composed of over 360 interviews with pedestrians in the streets of 12 latin american cities, and it examines processes of democratization as they relate to United States interventionist policies in the region. Carlos Motta is a multi-disciplinary artist (b. Bogotá, Colombia, 1978) whose work draws upon political history in an attempt to create counter narratives that recognize the inclusion of suppressed histories, communities, and identities.
