Article by Hans Herzog on the Mexican artists Teresa Margolles and Teresa Serrano
February 2, 2021
Hans Herzog, an acknowledged international expert on contemporary art, particularly from Latin America, has written an article on the work of Teresa Margolles and Teresa Serrano.
"Today I will introduce two outstanding women from the Mexican contemporary art scene: Teresa Margolles and Teresa Serrano. Both their art is highly expressive; both of them are exuberant bundles of energy in the «real world». And they certainly need this energy, as they are continuously engaged in countering the most blatant wrongs, much like two artists-cum-advocates. In very different ways, and each in her own right, they have become narrators of the violence which unfortunately not only prevails the gang and drug scenes in Mexico, but which does not spare civilians, in particular women, either."
