Flora presents the workshop ‘El lugar de lo intangible en el arte’

From practices that combine material production, writing, research and teaching, Bernardo Ortiz and Lucas Ospina propose an activity that starts from the meeting between the attendees. Supported by artistic and historical references that give context to their activity, Ortiz and Ospina invite to reflect on the use of free time, daily practices of resistance to the efficiency of time and productivity, and the role of artistic practice as a reflection of said reflection.


Bernardo Ortiz is an artist and writer (Bogotá, Colombia, 1972). He studied art at the Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia) and then obtained a Master's degree in philosophy at Universidad del Valle (Cali-Colombia). Ortiz was co-curator of the 41st National Salon of Artists in Cali in 2008, and editorial curator of the 7th Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 2009. He was co-editor of Valdez magazine, he has taught at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, and is a member of the advisory committee of Lugar a Dudas in Cali.
