Based on the ideas developed in my project Boothworks, I carried out this performance within the framework of ARCOMadrid art fair in the form of a guided tour to a small group of collectors.

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 art fair’s 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.
