Andreina Isea Boscan: As a bookmark. 2019
Time of production: 2 hrsProduction costs: 100 chf References: Inspired by an already existent artist-wages-system in another continent and the current conflict with translation not only of languages but of culture and cultural policies in various social-political diverse countries. Description: Assuming every reader is familiarized with a bookmark, "As a bookmark" takes the common representation of it to deliver a message that plays with the struggles of the words going through literal translationprocesses from Spanish to English. The piece not only speaks and celebrate the already existent initiative in another country to recognize wages and salaries to artists and art makers but also exposes the importance of language to identify diverse norms and/or statutes in specific contexts, in order to be applied and followed.
