An old text, another beautiful text
Titled My Favourite Foldable Cabinet,
, an argentinean essay writer wrote about Acido Surtido in the book
34An Acid Experience
, a book that compiles the first ten Acido Surtido issues and selected the most representative works from each one.
Avant-garde groups’ modus operandi (20th century’s landmark) could be defined in a nut shell: a group of artists creating processes to inoculate in the body of art a novelty which pushes (and surpasses) its antecedents thus making them fade away, following modern times progress logic. Collective construction of these processes resulted in a profile, that is, a difference or style.
This kind of conspiracies (remember that conspire means breathing together) which were the ancestors of aesthetical collective groups, worked as a scale community, or a military force happily but tragically heading for an unknown territory. However, there were, but less, different experiences which remained aside the novelty anticipation
neurosis to manufacture an induced anamnesis laboratory: that is, for example, Bureau de Recherches surréalistes founded in Paris in December 1st , 1923 by Antonin Artaud.
An office, a factory, or a laboratory; a place where nobody cares about creating the winning idea but fostering a group auscultation territory with individual fantasies. From its beginning, Acido Surtido has been working as a sort of a visual stethoscopes (mind the cenesthesia), or better, a great ecography machine to analyze and stimulate.
Bureau, office or factory as cells creating information, mechanisms to manage a file cabinet with personal information on a topic. Surtido (varied) refers to the diversity of approaches that are updated and delivered: acid tactics to explore multiple qualities. Acido Surtido develops a detailed thematic plan: presenting visual or textual formats to question the devices that created each topic. A factory or residency. It’s impossible to separate Acido Surtido from hospitality practices of collective care. I must confess that from its first issue, I have enjoyed this mosaic-poster dynamic: the best way to replace a board where captivating images were hang in the old times.
