I'm Joana. But I almost was Consuelo.
Raised to be Argentinian, but in Brazil. So: always in the wrong place.
Because of that, I got an unceasing irrational impulse for the unusual and creative ways people find to fit through life, specially if they are twisted with the really ancient ones.

And like that, I redeemed my curse into a gift.
I want to go as many wrong places as I can.

My biggest interrogation right now? What it is all about being the overused therm "latinamerican"?
My primer field: to discover South America through its noninstitutional art.

Why?
Through my philosophy studies, specially my recently finished master degree, I found in art, that made ​​spontaneously, a great place to gather clues of the infinite ways in which man fits in life, since it is able to show it during the process.
It's all there: the list of the most significant details of the landscape, the way to love, the longings, the hopes. In its most timeless forms, highlights what is important to some people, how and why it was kept until today. And the recent art forms, which can range from graffiti to a new kind of music created in this moment, are like old clothes that no longer fits, asking to be adjusted, reinventing them, thus making new ones. That one day no longer fit as well...

Let's see what comes out.

First stop: Colombia.


Hopefully, this will turn one day in my PhD tesis.
