Mexico 68/CU, Heidrun Holzfeind.

This two-volume book combines two art projects by Heidrun Holzfeind.

Mexico 68 investigates the impact of the ’68 student movement on Mexican society, politics and culture in general, and on the lives of the participants in particular.
Conducted almost forty years after the fact, the 18 interviews with activists offer a diverse range of personal accounts, political and social analysis as well as reflections on the events that took place during this mythic year.

CU (Mexico City, August 2006) – is a personal portrait of ‘Ciudad Universitaria’, the National University’s Mexico City campus. The carefully composed shots of exterior and interior views, architectural details, and eerily unpopulated hallways, class rooms and walkways highlight Holzfeind’s interest in aging modernist structures, the conceptualization of the campus as a modern ‘city’ and the use of functionality in the Mexican modernization project.

With texts by Cuauhtémoc Medina and Jorge Reynoso Pohlenz.

Transfer Drawings. Mechanical reproduction of another kind. Markus Uhr.
Text (English/German): Madeleine Schuppli.
Published by Kodoji Press. 250 copies.

“As source material Markus Uhr uses fragments of images and texts taken from the American as well as the German press. He cuts out individual motifs from the papers to assemble an archive of photographic ans typographic clippings, extracting all manner of themes from the cleary structured system of every newspaper: logos, headlines, reportage photographs. Once removed from their original function within the newsprint medium, these extracts mutate into free-floating, unrelated particles inside Markus Uhr’s pool of images.
