"The jungle is where you call for it".

The exhibition is the result of an interdisciplinary examination with Central- and South American Muralismo, that deals with processes of transformation between urban and rural spaces through artistic language and symbolism. A movement that is showing , denounces and at the same time, shapes them.

These processes of transformation can be seen as an overflowing of the city - an overflow that manifests itself through the art that has been born in the city. With this exhibition a perspective about this complex interlocking is to be opened, which is coming from the city, to be spread under it, and through it.

The combination of various forms of Muralismo and techniques of Mural Art with motifs that no longer necessarily use symbols, nor imagination of the urban space, is a first characterisation of the contemporary Central- and South American Mural Art which pervades the continent. While this form of Mural Art is not especially new, nor even specifically Central- and South American, the answer to the question if it is being up to date perhaps lies in the current global crisis. This crisis demands new forms of organisation and social movements, new unions, innovative ideas or unusual connections.
