Five essays by Panamanian editor, curator, journalist, and art critic Adrienne Samos, written between 2000 and 2015. Her texts have been one of the most important driving forces of critical thinking in Panama since the early 1990s, reflecting upon the relevance and the public dimension of contemporary art. Samos’ writings perfectly understand what it means to respond opportunely to the urgencies of a specific place and time. Each text is an attempt to grasp those different moments of transformation and to reconstruct the social, economic, and political processes that led to some of the most daring artistic practices in the region.
