MALGRÉ TOUT

As part of the Monumenta exhibition, the project called for the symbolical intervention of the sculpture Malgré tout by Jesús Contreras, located in the Alameda in Mexico City.

 

The idea was to expose the sanctions applicable at the time in cases of murder and violence stated by the Mexico City Penal Code, on this statue of a handcuffed woman in a provocative pose. The work was exhibited next to the original statue and on posters and postcards distributed throughout the city.
