C.U.V.O. | caja urbana de voces otras is an interdisciplinary project, in which literature becomes performative in the frame of an “installation-machine-monument” located in the public space.
Inside a cabin different people read, one after the other, stories from different places in their mother tongue, for 30 hours non-stop. The project is a human-machine that works without rest, day and night. Placed in the public space of a city, C.U.V.O. acts as a living monument, activating associations, memories and images in the visitor, only through the spoken word.
C.U.V.O. / caja urbana de voces otras was presented in the city of Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA in Mujeres Argentinas square, in the frame of Night of Museums in Buenos Aires. 70 participants read in more than 25 different languages including native languages like quechua, aymara, guarani and nahuatl (México).
