In this video, Alexander Apóstol investigates the relationship between architecture, art, and urban planning in relation to Venezuelan history through reference to the work of Carlos Cruz-Diez, a pioneer of Kinetic and Op art. Apóstol’s project reflects the vibrancy and sophistication of Cruz-Diez’s architectural projects, which themselves mirror the progressive political climate that arose in Venezuela during an economic boom birthed by 1973’s U.S. energy crisis. Yet as the work—and recent events in Venezuela—also suggest, democracy in this context was not quite as firmly established as it appeared.
