Rosario Arostegui and Carolina Boettner
Rosario Arostegui (Buenos Aires) is a visual artist. After graduating from the University of Buenos Aires she continued her studies in the USA. In 1995 she moved to Germany. Currently, she works at her atelier in Basis e.V., Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
Her work is a process of personal exploration and questioning. She is inspired by human nature: man’s constant confrontation with himself, and his desire in finding a balance when facing a world in constant transformation and in which the ephemeral predominates. Arostegui deconstructs and reconstructs to obtain poetic images and objects in order to reach a spiritualy introspection and silence.
Her works were exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, among them the IntaKt-Galerie, Vienna, Austria (2021), Basis, Frankfurt am Main, Germany (2019) and the Centro Cultural Borges, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2016).
Carolina Boettner (Buenos Aires, 1980) is a transdisciplinary artist who placed her interest on a deconstructive attitude towards reality. In her audiovisual works she reveals the reasons for our reality interpretations while dismantling them and exposing their deception of enslavement and salvation.

Her works have been exhibited in international festivals around te world, among them the Paraflows XI – Identidad, the Vienna Digital Arts Festival, NodeCCS in Caracas, Miami New Media festival (2017) and the III International Biennial of Video Art and Animation, Puebla, Mexico (2018).
