Los Carpinteros are participating in the group exhibition ‘Buildering: Misbehaving the city’ at the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati. Curated by Steven Matijicio, the show takes its thematic overhead from the term ‘buildering’, a term coined for the unsanctioned use of architecture. Fusing the words “building” and “bouldering”, the term as well as the exhibition describes a rapidly growing movement that reformulates how we live the city. In this vein, Los Carpinteros will present their work El Barrio (2007), which means ‘neighbourhood’, and comprises pristine cardboard boxes, each the size of a toddler’s playhouse, with a cutout doorway and windows.
