I have worked with demonstrations as a form of abstract communal artwork. These demonstrations have been performed in different cities. The demonstrations has been the basis for gathering people in a non political situation. The concept: Demonstration, is combined with ideas about abstract painting in a historical and contemporary context.
In Mexico City it started as a one week workshop where we developed paintings/demonstration plakats inspired from the Swedish modernist painter Olle Baertling. We applied for demonstration permit and got police protection, the walk started at Plaza de la República and ended in the downtown square (Zócalo Capitalino)
