Over the course of several weeks, Mexican artists led the performance collective Gintersdorfer/Klaßen to the Mexico City locations they personally believe are traversed by artistic and social lines of confrontation: A road closure that divides former neighbors from Santa Maria de Ribero and Tlatelolco; the stairs inside the outwardly glittering Soumaya Museum, founded by millionaire Carlos Slim, are too steep; the drug-dealer protection fence in the university’s sculpture park, erected after the park was built, that severs the unity of landscape, sculpture and architecture; the cityscape of the newly christened city Ciudad de Mexico is characterized by money-laundering businesses; the tourist-friendly gentrification of the Centro Historico; pink city marketing. An exorcism-related performance emerges from the specific attributes of these places.
