last autumn, while in residency with la llama in venezuela, luis romero (director of the foundation) introduced an old printers' workshop dating back from the 1920's, still using a machine made in 1904, and currently run by rogelio, a wonderful cuban man born in 1924 who wishes to retire soon
we would like him to be able to retire, but we would also like to save the machine from retirement and ensure someone takes over the workshop after he leaves. ten artists were invited to the first poster book, curated by luis romero.
