The project gathered young artists with a strong social commitment, many of them with a childhood marked by the problems Colombia has experienced when it comes to crime, assaults from the militia and easy access to drugs and weapons. Several of the artists comment directly upon this in their works.

Colombia has gone through great changes over the last decade, and Bogotá has become one of the most vibrant cultural cities on the Latin-American continent. Today, one can find public galleries side by side with alternative artist-run project rooms, commercial galleries and artist residencies, and a more enthusiastic, open and varied audience.

For this project TrAP has collaborated with the artist and curator group El Parche since 2010. El Parche, Marius Wang and Olga Robayo, have been based in Bogotá for several years, and run an artist-in-residency with showrooms for visitors and local artists. With Colomborama we wanted to show the diversity of today's blossoming art and culture scene in Colombia, and show its position and development during the last decade, through several exhibition sites in Oslo.
