One of the daily activities of the city—a tour on the boat Barracuda (built in 1940) through the natural beauties of the Patagonian landscape—was on this occasion transformed into a trip along the route traveled by Charles Darwin. For three hours, the Paradigm Confines Tour turned the entire ship, its crew and the landscape into participants in a sailing mise-in-scène.

The Tour offers options such as: creating a transnational document (Transnational Republik), participating in a symposium (Ali-Brouchoud, Jaio, Zaccagnini, Burns, Iregui, Herrero), listening to music (Raquel Garbelotti, Wagner Morales y Carla Zaccagnini ), reading (Smithson, Alÿs, Rolnik, Barriendos, several publications), bringing out an NBP by Ricardo Basbaum and drinking a Paradigm Sour (the tour’s special drink) while contemplating the landscape from the prow of the ship.
