Carolina Caycedo engages with issues and contexts that affect a broad public on an everyday level: in her work, art functions as a pretext for offering up utopian models to inhabit a world in which individuals and communities are increasingly subject to com-modification, exploitation, and discrimination. As part of the Colombian art collective Colectivo Cambalache, she helped conceive the project “Museo de la calle” (1999–2002) — an ambulatory and constantly shifting archive of objects initially collected by bartering in one of the city’s most marginal neighborhoods and then circulated and displayed around Bogotá and eventually abroad.
