Publisher's description: In 2002, Hans Ulrich Obrist began his conversation with a diverse and influential group of Mexican pioneers during an exhibition at Luis Barragan's house in Mexico City. Over a decade in the making, Conversations in Mexico beautifully captures how the Mexican cultural scene has pivoted several times -- perhaps most importantly around the student protests at the 1968 Olympic Games -- to cultivate a wholly radical and innovative aesthetic, one that is illuminated in the iconic buildings of Pedro Ramirez Vazquez and Teodoro Gonzalez de Leon; the people and landscapes photographed by Graciela Iturbide; the music of Esquivel; the incredible voyages of Santiago Genoves; the utopian politics and literature of Carlos Fuentes, Margo Glantz and Elena Poniatowska; the singular vision of Alejandro Jodorowsky; and the uncompromising art of Leonora Carrington, Felipe Ehrenberg, Pedro Friedeberg, Juan Soriano and Eduardo Terrazas.
