Marta Minujín resignified a historical performance for the Bienal, Encuentra a tu igual (Find your Match). This time, her proposal started with an app through a series of questions inviting the audience to find their soul mates and concluding with an encounter at the Puente de la Mujer (Woman's Bridge) in Puerto Madero, on which the artist droped thousands of flower petals from a helicopter.
This piece inscribed in Minujín's staunch tradition started in the 1960s. Simultaneity in Simultaneity - Three Countries Happening, for example, was developed in 1966 in collaboration with German and American artists. At that time, while the event was taking place, 500 phone calls were made and 100 telegrams were sent to spectators who were following the intervention on TV, with the message "You are a creator."
Almost half a century later, in the age of Internet, Minujín once again presented one of her emblematic poetic urban interventions, between the pacifist audacity of the 60s' Flower Power, and the current communication fabric of social media.
