“Below the Tibidabo Amusement Park, just where the BV-1418 and BP-1417 roads meet, there are some stairs that go up into the forest. Climbing them, a few meters up on the right, we will find a large stone hidden among the trees. This site is little known, although it is widely believed that the various holes on the surface of the stone were made by prehistoric man and probably served to place the organs of sacrificed bodies. It is also said that it may have served as a trap for animals” – Jorge Satorre.
In the twentieth and concluding dispatch of Incidents (of Travel)
, Latitudes are led by Jorge Satorre
in something of a “voyage around our room”. Manifested itself all over the world since 2016
through the perspectives of other invited curators and artists, Incidents (of Travel)
now takes place with us in our own backyard of Barcelona.
follows a route from the north to the south of the city – from Collserola to Montjuïc – tracing wild boars, two mysterious dolmens, and the devil’s hoof prints along the way.
By chance, this episode takes place on September 19, 2022, exactly ten years later to the day of the first tour commissioned for the first phase
of Incidents (of Travel)
, a day we spent with Minerva Cuevas
around Mexico City’s city centre on the 27th anniversary of the deadly 1985 earthquake.
This episode culminates Latitudes’ collaboration with KADIST
, producers of twenty wonderful episodes between 2016 and 2022 as part of their online projects
. In 2015, KADIST hosted another three tours during Latitudes’ residency
at their San Francisco hub. Previously, in 2013, Spring Workshop
in Hong Kong produced four itineraries within the frame of the long-term multi-part project Moderation(s)
in partnership with (then known as) Witte de With
Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, and in 2012, at the invitation of UNAM’s Casa del Lago
, Latitudes commissioned the first five itineraries
around Mexico City.
