Various thinkers in the arts and humanities, who have dialogued with Luis Felipe Ortega and written about his work over the course of his career, have contributed to the creation of this book.
It is conceived as a continuum; there is no table of contents at the beginning and the chronological listing of the images and texts it contains are at the end of the volume, where they function as index.
Alexis Salas and Sergio González Rodríguez have prepared texts specifically for this work, in addition to the ammassed contributions from other renowned voices in the art and cultural field. Salas reviews Luis Felipe Ortega’s career, in dialogue with the content of this book, while González focuses on one piece: “Truth Lives at the End if the Tunnel”.
