Based on the ideas developed in Boothworks, I carried out this performance within the framework of ARCOMadrid 2020 art fair in the form of a guided tour. Presenting myself as an art curator, expert in international booth art, I introduced the attendees to this relatively new art form and its history, analysing some examples. Thus, we looked at the IFEMA exhibition space as a museum, the works of the artists as ingredients of a greater totality - the booth - and the gallery owners as the ultimate authors of these ephemeral creations.
