About Iván Buenader
Iván Buenader’s work seeks to abolish language and at the same time it is supported by it.
It has dependence on the signs. It goes to original thinking, not ideas. Overvalue the symbols to devalue them. Direct messages to intuition, not reason.
Graduated in Bachelor of Systems Analysis, diploma of honor ( University of Buenos Aires – Faculty of Engineering ).
He wrote 10 novels ( ‘I will deny everything’, ‘La desmesura’, ‘The inadequate’, ‘Relapso’ ) and 6 books of poems ( ‘Poems to read well fart’; ‘Elusive’ ).
