Eduardo Molinari is a visual artist who lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2001 he founded the Archivo Caminante (Walking Archive), a visual archive in progress that delves into existing and imaginary relations between art, history and politics. Walking as an aesthetic practice, research using art methodologies and interdisciplinary work form the core of his work. His artwork is made up of paintings, drawings, photographs, collages, installations, interventions in public spaces, films and publications. Since 1997 he has been teaching at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón and since 2000 at the Visual Arts and Fire Arts Departments of the Instituto Universitario Nacional de Arte (IUNA) in Buenos Aires. In 2010 he founded and co-directs, together with the visual artist Azul Blaseotto, the La Dársena_Plataforma de Pensamiento e Interacción Artística cultural space in Almagro, Buenos Aires and the associated editorial project unproblema+_mónadanómada.
