Where would we be if we had never met?



After more than eight years of collaborative work, which, at times, has united a group of almost a dozen active members castillo/corrales in Paris closed its space in December 2015.

Thomas Boutoux who was involved with the project from the start will talk about the stories behind castillo/corrales – always thought of less as a space than as an attempt at working and thinking differently – and its continuing legacy and publishing house Paraguay Press.


Thomas Boutoux (born 1975) is a curator, writer, and publisher. He is a founding member of castillo/corrales, a gallery, bookstore, and publishing house operated by a collective of artists, curators, and writers in Paris from 2007 to 2015. Previously he founded Metronome Press with Clementine Deliss, and is today one of the representatives of the collaborative project and imprint Paraguay. He teaches contemporary social theory at the Art School of Bordeaux France, and regularly writes for books and magazines.
