Publisher Note

Guadelupe Ruiz has undertaken an artistic research of the social and demographic discrepancies between the various parts of the Colombian capital Bogota. The population of each of these six neighbourhoods within the city forms one income and related tax class, and as such also represents a specific social class. Ruiz looks at houses and apartments, whole interiors and single pieces of furniture, decorative elements and other of the inhabitants' personal items, family photographs and depictions of saints. This panorama of private rooms and traces of their inhabitants' tastes and ways of life shows economical discrepancies but also makes traceable the remarkable cultural parallels between the classes. "Guadalupe Ruiz Bogota D.C." is a subtle, yet provoking examination of the artist's native city. It presents Ruiz's work for the first time in print and complete. The series' 120 images are arranged by neighbourhood, and an included map locates each individual image within both the neighborhoods and the entire city.
