is presenting Simulacro y simulación, a summer group exhibition.
The exhibition explores the concept of simulacrum and simulation, proposed by Jean Baudrillard in 1981. Simulacra are copies that represent things that either had no principle of reality or already lack an original. The simulacrum is the imitation of a real-world process or system over time. The simulacrum is never what hides the truth - it is the truth that hides that there is no truth. The simulacrum is real.
