Graffitis for the Blind

This project lives somewhere between public and private, between socio-political urban intervention and installation, to focus on a specific problem: blindness and its relationship to the city’s symbolic and linguistic codes. it is a reflection on the importance of putting oneself in someone else’s shoes in order to understand other ways of moving through, decoding, and experiencing a shared city.

Virginia Corda & Maria Paula Doberti graduated from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Pridiliano Pueyrredón, Buenos Aires. Individually, they work on artist books, objects and installations. Since 2002 they’ve done urban interventions and street performances together as members of the Grupo de Arte Callejero Periferia and in dual projects such as Accidentes Urbanos.
