TERESA MARGOLLES (1963, Mexico)

Teresa Margolles creates works about death; “What else could we talk about?” For years, she worked in a morgue in Mexico City, where the corpses of the, mostly drug-related, killings came in on a daily basis. Recently, she replaced the morgue to work directly in the locations where the killings take place.
