    Soy el final de la reproducción presents three generations of Spanish artists offering perspectives on architecture and sculpture through "politics of no." Their works examine transience and processes of accumulation that lead sometimes paradoxically to the dissolution of information. Curated by Beatriz Herráez.

    Soy el final de la reproducción, translated as I am the end of reproduction, is a celebration of recessive and transient aesthetics. In the book Bartleby & Co, Spanish writer Enrique Vila-Matas introduces the notion of "writers of No", writers who, when faced with the possibility of writing, "would prefer not to". All quietly forsook vanity and tried instead to contain the possible space for "the writing to come" - ultimately retreating from production and creativity. In an era where we seek generative systems, Soy el final de la reproducción looks at studies of space, or modes of operation, that state themselves (or their intentions) to be recessive. This exhibition explores the fleeting, grey space of "No".
