"Entre Cerros" at the USB

An interpretation of the "cerros" or slums on Caracas´ hills by Doris Raecke was exhibitted at the Universidad Simón Bolívar´s "Magia del Arte" initiative in 2005. The show included a series of watercolors depicting the development of the "cerros" from invasion to consolidation.

Too often no road but endless stairways lead to the upper part of the "barrio".

Whenever necessary, another story is added to the "rancho".
