About Artist Talk with Abraham Cruzvillegas / Exhibition opening%
Abraham Cruzvillegas (born 1968) belongs to a generation of Mexican artists who combine manufactured and natural materials of all kinds and origins in unusual ways, contextualizing these anew. The exhibition in Haus der Kunst brings together recent works by the artist that use the social dynamics within the illegal constructions in Ajusco - a district situated south of Mexico City - as a model for sculptures and large-scale installations. Cruzvillegas transfers his approach onto different regions of the world, resulting in hybrid alliances. In an interview with León Krempel, the artist responded to questions, including those about his self-perception as an artist. He also played samples from his music collection.
The interview was followed by the openings of "Abraham Cruzvillegas — The Autoconstrucción Suites" at Haus der Kunst and "Pictures in Time — Goetz Collection".
