Adriana Bustos

Lives and works in
(b. 1965 in Bahía Blanca, Argentina; lives in Córdoba, Argentina)

Adriana Bustos’ work draws a connection between the gold trade and its distribution in routes in colonial America, and drug trafficking in the current transnational market. Recursos (Resources) and RRHH delve into the international production and consumption of drugs, exploring the roles of people and places involved in this age-old global enterprise. The “resources” are mainly natural—South America is represented as a vast territory of drug plantations and jungles harboring clandestine kitchens—but also human.
