GUIDED TOUR AND ACTIVATIONS WITH CURATOR JULIETA GONZÁLEZ
Julieta González, Artistic Director of Museo Jumex and curator of Franz Erhard Walther: Objects, to Use / Instruments for Processes, will walk through the exhibition gallery and talk with visitors on the artistic atmosphere of the 1960s and 1970s, the period in which the German artist developed his work. Also, González will talk about the concepts of artwork dematerialization and the uses of photography in contemporary art around the notions of recording, action and performativity.
Participants will be able to activate 1. Werksatz, one of his most radical pieces, that unsettled the traditional notion of sculpture.
