Erick Beltrán

The work of Erick Beltrán is an investigation on the concept of edition. It focuses on the mechanisms that define, value, classify, reproduce, and distribute images and discourses to create social, cultural, political, and economic conducts and values in contemporary societies.

An emblematic drawing from the 16th century in black and white shows an elderly, confused man with a nest and a bird on his head, trying to ward off flying insects with a broom.
