Teresa Margolles

28 May - 28 Aug 2011

Curated by Rein Wolfs and Letizia Ragaglia

Violence as an integral part of daily life: pain and death are constant themes in the work of the Mexican artist Teresa Margolles (1963, Culiacan). The Museion exhibition tackles the murders and disappearances in the city of Jaurez in Mexico: a central element of the presentation is a wall with visible bullet holes left by executioners.
The show also features a filmed action created by the artist in Bolzano, inspired by the thought that all places have a story of suffering etched into their past.

In cooperation with the Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel
