Carlos Amorales: Cabaret Amorales


1. June 2001  – 12. August 2001

Featuring artworks by:
Carlos Amorales

In his first large solo exhibition, the Mexican artist Carlos Amorales (*1970, currently living in Amsterdam) has created a pathway with new installations for the migros museum. In his artistic work, Amorales devotes himself to sociocultural and sociopolitical questions, focussing on his Mexican origins. Always designed as a performance, his work challenges the beholder to take a position.
