From 1999 to 2006 Cristian Forte was part of the artistic group Etcétera, in Buenos Aires, and in 2009 he arrived in Berlin, a city that offered him a new reality to describe and fresh ways to do so. In 2010, in collaboration with Milena Caserola (BBAA), he founded the independent publishing house Milena Berlin. With Katja von Helldorff he formed the band Leiseylento. In 2014 he won first prize with Erica Zíngano at the festival SoundOut – New Ways of Presenting Literature thanks to the project KM.0. consisting of several interventions in the city. In 2015 he curated the performance cycle RAUMumDICHTUNG (Förderung künstlerischer Projekte 2015 Kulturamt Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg) and the performative workshop “Die Stadt als Lochkamera” (“The city as a pinhole camera”) with Mirella Galbiatti and Ginés Olivares (Forum Stadtpark, Austria). In 2016 he received an artist residency in “Beta-Local” – a bookbinding project in cooperation with Nicole Delgado, in Puerto Rico. In July 2016 he will be a guest of the 19th Hausacher LeseLenz Festival (Germany). Texts from him appeared in the anthologies „El Tejedor en Berlín“ (LUPI, Spain 2015) and „MMM DIARIUM“ (Hybriden Verlag, Berlin, 2016).
