Discover Mexico City
Welcome to the avant-garde and experimentation capital in Latin America! At MUTEK MX we put together this list of recommendations so visitors from around the world can expand their experience, enjoying a selection of spaces, exhibitions and meeting points in the city that also inspire us.
These are our recommendations for Discovering Mexico City, between one activity and another of our programme at MUTEK México Edition 19.

Helen Escobedo’s Ambientes totales Exhibit @ Laboratorio de Arte Alameda
The exhibition reviews the work of iconic architect and sculptor Escobedo (Mexico City, 1934-2010) as an installation artist, a practice she pioneered in Mexico and which she used to question the traditional flow of perception between the artist, the work, and the viewer through her conception of art as a “total environment".
404 Festival Internacional de Arte y Tecnología @ CENART
OFFF MX @ Auditorio BB
REVERSŌ V. II @ Casa del Lago UNAM
REVERSŌ is an object-based installation that explores the poetics of space through a threshold of light; an immersive experience composed of a geometric landscape, which in its interaction seeks a sensory response from the observer. It is presented by the Chilean duo Nøctuary together with the collaboration Caco Marshall, in terms of sound.
