Their work questions contemporary life, and focuses on revisiting assumptions that govern social behavior, shaping our way of thinking and doing things. In this way, they develop strategies that analyze the power of artistic practices to intervene reality and generate political imagination as they are developed. Their projects take different shapes, including conferences, performances, field trips, debates, theater plays, exhibits and installations. They created Nostalgia de una Ciencia Ficción Futura (2014), Reported Speech (2015), Proyecto Monumental (2017), Darwin secuestra a tres fueguinos y les enseña inglés (2017) and Línea Histórica (2018).
These works have been showcased in different venues in Argentina and abroad, including the International Dramaturgy Festival (2018), De Singel (Antwerp 2014), Venice Biennale (2015), NAVE (Santiago de Chile, 2017), Casa del Bicentenario (Bienal Sur 2017) and the Centro Cultural San Martín.

The Office of consented Monuments (OMC) is a trans-disciplinary project that began in 2017 through the Proyecto Monumental, a public competition that invited participants to submit projects for monuments to be placed in the location previously assigned to the statues of Juana Azurduy and Cristopher Columbus. The jury selected nine projects that were presented during a public deliberation at El Cultural San Martín, the winner of which was El monumento al contrabandista by artist Lux Lindner. Currently, this project is being promoted by the OMC to be discussed in the Buenos Aires legislature for its future placement.
The Office of consented Monuments l OMC will be opening to the public in order to assist, promote and manage monumental projects.
