The Fundación Cisneros' Conversaciones/Conversations series publishes firsthand testimonies of leading artists and intellectuals from Latin America. German-born Uruguayan Luis Camnitzer (born 1937) has been an influential artist, theorist, teacher and curator for nearly five decades. He was at the vanguard of 1960s Conceptualism, working in printmaking, sculpture installation and other media. Camnitzer's work challenges our perception of reality and the status quo and is often characterized by its humorous, often politically charged use of language to underscore issues of power and commodification. In this eighth volume from the Conversaciones series, Camnitzer continues to explore his unique approach to Conceptualism and art as pedagogy with Latin American art scholar Alexander Alberro.
