From the question: “Who guides us?” And the answer: “The Devil, probably,” a group of artists were invited to create spaces to manifest the awareness that the hands that guide us are not our own.

Colombia has a very special relationship with evil and the devil. The cultural mix that originated today’s society has a symbolic undertone that leads us to think the different situations that make up reality in religious images. On the other hand, there is a widespread feeling in the country that the real forces never come to light and that there is an invisible hand that manipulates everything. The exhibition did not intend to prove a theory but to find diverse visions, as different as possible.
