Gego

A Solid Core of Reasoning

Gego (1912–1994) was a German-Venezuelan artist, architect, and designer who gained international recognition with her large-format spatial installations. She is considered one of the most representative artists of 20th-century abstraction in Latin America.

Parallel to her artistic work, Gego developed a particular methodology in which she managed to combine the technical rigor of the Bauhaus heritage with the creative freedoms of art. This program was aimed at future architects and designers, among which was curator and researcher Ruth Auerbach. From Caracas, Venezuela, Ruth talks to LA ESCUELA___ about architecture, art, and the unique pedagogy of her peculiar teacher.
