This publication, the second in the Conversations series, contains a collection of interviews between the artist, industrial designer and theoretician Tomás Maldonado and the writer María Amalia García, with an essay by Alejandro Crispiani. Maldonado recounts his work with avant-garde movements of Argentina in the forties and fifties, and his search for a rational methodology that would later take him to the world of architecture, design and aesthetic theory.
Tomás Maldonado, born in Buenos Aires in 1922, gained international recognition for his work at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm, Germany, one of the most important European schools of design after the Bauhaus, where from 1954 to 1967 he served as a teacher, theorist of the new study plan and rector, and for his work as a designer for the Olivetti. However, its important participation as one of the founders of the Argentine avant-garde movement Arte-Concreto Invención, characterized by the use of irregular frames, geometric forms, and a systematic approach in the production of art, is less known.
