Elisabeth Vollert is a curator and cultural producer of contemporary art projects developed in site-specific and social contexts. Based in Bogotá, Colombia, she is the Co-Founder and Artistic Director of La Otra, arte contemporaneo, founded in 2007 as a platform to promote interdisciplinary practices, experimentation and investigation. Since its inception, La Otra has inhabited distinct locations of the city with the goal of dismantling the territorial, socio-political, economic and cultural barriers linked to civil life in these communities.
Vollert discusses La Otra Bienal as a vital platform for the contemporary art of Latin America and will consider art within the public sphere as an interactive meeting point in the urban imaginary by means of re-signification, appropriation and recuperation.
