Urquiza Librería/Galería joins the BP.19 with a two-fold proposal: the exhibit by Juan Reos, courtesy of Galería Atocha, and a wide range of publications on performance.

In Antes. Un mundo sin reliquias (2017) Reos recreates iconic works and performance episodes of Argentine art in the 60's using engraving, choosing pieces that were never documented and of which there are only stories, ambiguous and ever-changing. Ten etchings/aquatint prints (also included in a book by the artist) combined with a fictional narration ''take record'' of undocumented performances done by the first neo-avant-garde Argentine artists, with pieces such as Carta a Romero Brest, Las fuentes rojasBonino aclara ciertas dudas, Tumba de Tut Ank Amon, Greco puto, La pelea, Poesía urbana, El piolín. In this way, they propose an imaginary game with the limits of representation and our historical imagination. On the other hand, throughout the BP19, a specialized panel on performance books and catalogues will be offered for those seeking to become familiar with the discipline.
