Walden was begun in 2017 with its initial itinerary of traveling residencies in Latin America. We met with eight directors from Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay and Portugal four times on the outskirts of Bogotá, Sao Paulo and Mar del Plata. In 2018 we repeated the experience; this time with six stops and the additions of Medellín, Montevideo and Salvador de Bahía. Today, we want to include some European countries to this ever-growing route: Spain, Portugal and Iceland are the first stops to appear over the course of, and beginning in, 2019. In our ongoing progress, we are learning from each encounter and adding up new allies, new accomplices. While the experience is thus getting stronger and richer, it is also getting more critical and demanding with each project we follow and with an ever-evolving idea of transmission and creation. We would like to take this opportunity to present Walden at the DocumentaMadrid festival, as well as share how we understand and approach the creative process that runs through us and defines us.
