I disagree with the way in which power is exercised in Mexico, but I participate in the consensus, as I choose not take up as a personal task to bring power down. Cuauhtémoc Medina (AM, 38)
Art has a political effect, among other things, because consciously or unconsciously culture workers as well as mass media celebrities all take part in representations which are producing hegemonies. Cuauhtémoc Medina (AM, 446)
Cuauhtémoc Medina’s book Abuso mutuo (Mutual Abuse) establishes the landscape of art production in Mexico from the 1990s until 2013. Compiled by Daniel Montero and Edgar Hernández, it includes published and unpublished texts written for conferences about curating, artist monographs, texts in which he takes a position and texts with which Medina participated in both national and international debates.
