Antonio Berni: the story of Juanito Laguna"
After being on view in Houston, the exhibition Antonio Berni: Juanito and Ramona arrives at MALBA. In this video, the artist tells the story of Juanito Laguna, a boy from the "extra-mural" grounds of the great Buenos Aires, who could also be any underprivileged boy from a Latin American city.

Berni incorporates collage to his production with the goal to accomplish more expressive intensity in each of his works. He employs materials from Juanito’s environment and surroundings, found not too far away from the neighborhood, in barren lands and the close vicinities. These include waste materials and leftovers from the big industries, recovered and stocked by the inhabitants of the suburbs, mostly immigrants coming from the Argentinean province or bordering countries.
