W.H.A.T W.H.A.T to do!

I think that foreigner tourist most visit different places that show the culture and do typical things that Chileans do to have fun or to have a nice time. Chilean food and Chilean drink of all kind need to be teats by them, which mean they need visit not only the highest places, but the popular one. They need going places for parting, visits the greatest museums and cultural centres of the city, go to public parks. etc.

Santiago has a lot of beautiful and funny places, for example, I said that one cool place to go if you are a foreigner tourist is "la piojera", basically because you can drink and eat at the Chilean way no matter the day or time you go. Inside, I mean the place it self is decorate like a "fonda" and is always full of people who scratch the wall with funny things to remember the visit. Other place that you need to go its cerro San Cristobal, if you climb up cerro San Cristobal you can see the entire city, it is a very lovely image. You can go down for the funicular and see the rest of Santiago when you do it. For drink and party you most go Bellavista area, you can go with very few money and drink a lot of beer (the best beer is the handmade beer). Close to pubs of Bellavista area there are dancing place for all taste so you go after drinking. Other places to go are Quinta Normal's cultural circuit who has different museums (like Contemporary Art Museum, National History Museum Arte Quin Museum, etc) parks and libraries.

My favourite Avant-Garde i most say it's Dadaism. Well, i love this movement and the reason why I think is't so important it's that there art work change the entired history of Art. This it's not my idea, they are a lot of people thats agree with me between them, important philosofers, historian and critics of arts. The most representative artist of this avant garde its definilly Marcel Duchamp. He probably did the greates, creative and clever art work , putting simples objetcs in a museum. This estrategy has to do whit the biggest cuestion in arts about what its art really, and pushing people think make serious reflections about art categories like "artist" "object" and "sing". This concept were questioned for work like "the fountain" or "Chair". This alsome artistic operations can't be oversome until our days. A similar impact was, decades after dadaism, the art works from Cezanne o Manet, they beggin the entired problem of "representation" in the painting, and Duchamp continius exploring this lenguage issue in art and become a leyend. . The biggest contribution was the all subject of the Art Institution. With “the fountain”, an urinal that he just buy singing it with the word “mutt”, was the fist time that some artist put an object doing notting in it, this operation represents the antic value of having the category and name of artist: finally art its what you say it is and what institution accept between there walls.
