Today, errors and failures are confronting permanently with the social pressure to follow the preconception and stereotyped ideas of successful and perfection, the main motor of the all social life in the contemporary western societies. The title of the conference works as metaphor about both philosophic and scientific concepts, playing with the notions of absolute and relative truth, and taking the error as a key-word between relativism and dialectic.
Etcetera… was formed in 1997 in Buenos Aires by a group of visual artists, poets, puppeteers and actors. They all shared the intention of bringing art to the site of immediate social conflict -the streets- and of bringing this conflict into arenas of cultural production, including the media and art institutions. Etcetera… worked closely with the human rights group H.I.J.O.S. (Children for Identity and Justice Against Forgetting and Silence).
Etcetera members Federico Zukerfeld and Loreto Garin Guzman have exhibited at the Istanbul Biennial (Errorist Kabaret, 2009) and Kunsthal Charlottenborg (2011).
