Challenging the traditional roles assigned to women within Mexican society, for the first time
works of the following contemporary Mexican women artists are being exhibited together in
Switzerland: Teresa Serrano (*1936), Ximena Cuevas (*1963), Betsabeé Romero (*1963),
Teresa Margolles (*1963), Claudia Fernández (*1965), Melanie Smith (*1965), and Maruch
Sántiz Gómez (*1975). Their photos, videos, objects and installations, all of which are on loan
from the Daros Latinamerica Collection (Zurich), cast a subversive light on the dominant
hierarchies of power and the different manifestations of national identity in Mexico.
