The Democracy of the Symbol. Leandro Erlich
On the occasion of the first site-specific work of Leandro Erlich in our country, which took the Obelisco Porteño as the core of a public art project, MALBA edited this publication. The democracy of the symbol collects essays by the argentine sociologist Christian Ferrer and by the north american curator and critic Dan Cameron, specially written for the occasion and illustrated with historical photographs. An interview with the artist by Agustín Pérez Rubio, Artistic Director of MALBA, which contextualizes this project in relation to the trajectory of Erlich and the tradition of other monumental public artworks, is also included. It includes photographs of the project in all phases of production.
