Etcetera…
Founded in 1997 in Buenos Aires, the group Etcetera is composed of visual artists, poets, puppeteers and actors, most of whom were under 20 at that time. They all shared the intention of bringing art to the sites of immediate social conflict – the streets – and bringing this conflict into arenas  of  cultural production, including the media and art institutions.
In 2005 Etcetera were part of the foundation of the movement, Errorist International: an international organisation that claims error as a philosophy of life.
Today the group continues to develop its activities collaboratively with other collectives and individuals. Loreto Garín Guzmán (Chile) and Federico Zukerfeld (Argentina) are cofounders of the Etcetera group.
Etcetera has presented at the Ludwig Museum in Cologne (2004), in Friedericianum Museum, Kassel; San Diego/Tijuana (2005), Taipei Biennial in Taiwan (2008), 11th Istanbul Biennial (2009), Linz Cuvee Biennial; MAMA showroom, Rotterdam; Palazzo Risso, Sicily; Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna; and Smart Project Space, Amsterdam (2009). In 2010 Etcetera curated the group exhibition Reciprocidad (Reciprocity).

Etcetera... was formed in Buenos Aires in 1997 by a group of visual artists, poets, puppeteers and actors. Etcetera’s work in the October Salon include a laboratory for investigating certain aspects of the development of collective memory and the different ways of representing it. The laboratory functions as a game, which will be made manifest through different modes such as storytelling, performance, absurd and grotesque theatre, and other artistic strategies.
