La democracia del símbolo


MALBA Fundación Costantini presents La democracia del símbolo, first site-specific work of Leandro Erlich (Buenos Aires, 1973) in the country, transforming the Obelisk -Icon of the City of Buenos Aires to the core of a public art project.

Through his artistic intervention, Leandro Erlich provides the possibility of visiting its interior and discovering the amazing aerial view for the first time since the founding in 1936.

La democracia del símbolo is a unique artistic and social initiative, the result of the union between the artist, his studio, MALBA, the Government of the City of Buenos Aires and the company Fate, the largest producer of tires in the country.

The Obelisk was built in 1936 by modernist architect Alberto Prebisch. Since then it has been a meeting and celebrating point. The place has also inspired countless artistic projects and pioneering photographers like Grete Stern and Horacio Coppola, who recorded its construction in a film-, Minujin, Leandro Katz, among many others.

It’s interior has always aroused everyone’s curiosity and this project provides for the first time the possibility of democratizing access, transforming it into a public monument, open to all.
