MUSEION of modern and contemporary art Bolzano
The cities of Kassel and Bolzano in Europe have chosen to act as amplifiers of the unrest in Ciudad Juarez, the Mexican city which is the focus of the exhibition “Frontera” by Teresa Margolles. The show, which was on in Kassel until February, will be presented in Bolzano from May 29th. “Frontera” reflects on the dramatic scale of drug trafficking in Mexican society. The artist has used basic but very striking elements to create the works in “Frontera”, and despite their minimalist style, they reveal great emotional depth and tragedy.
