Los Santos Mueren Antes

This is an artistic intervention in the Matadero Distrital de Bogotá (the district slaughterhouse). It is an effort to understand the pain of forgotten mothers who lose their children, articulated in the visual language developed by students and professors in the School of the Arts (ASAB) at the Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, in Bogotá. In that plundered, beaten and forgotten body, in these stumps that remain of the old slaughterhouse, we interpellate Colombian reality, here in what will be the future site of the Arts building of the University: the Aduanilla de Paiba.
