The work of Minerva Cuevas

©Minerva Cuevas

At the “Alle Dörfer bleiben-Demo” in June I got to know Minerva Cuevas from Mexico City. She is currently a studio scholarship holder in Mönchengladbach and I visited her in her studio. Only then did I realize how comprehensive and impressive her political and artistic work is. Graphics, painting, video and installations: Each of her works has a deep and direct expression of social criticism, which tears open the layer of ignorance on the high-definition surface of the commodity worlds and reminds us razor sharply of the violence in the production process of these products. She seems to proceed with ease, but above all: with great artistic power.  I am delighted that she will be reporting on her work for one evening on 7 August in the Solaris Culture Café.

home

to sway

not storm

-free

branches

rest in

forest

easy days

singularly

together

in tree

resistance

you were

given the

rest for

lunging at

energised

heads

taking

air from

open

mouths

infesting

it with

residue

the dues

a shade

too dark

for

breathing

lungs

so

serious

was the

play in

leaves

they

brought

you down

and green

was bought

and sold

our cry

for future

breath
