Exhibition catalog: Teresa Margolles. En la Herida

On over 100 exciting pages, readers get an insight into the creative world of the Mexican artist. Essays by Teresa Margolles herself, Florian Steininger and Maria Chiara Wang, interviews and lots of pictures help to understand the background of her work. The focus is on Margolles’ collaboration with Mexican transgender prostitutes and their hopeless situation in a violent country.

Margolles stayed in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico and became acquainted with locals through a contact person, Karla. For the series "Pistas de Baile" (2016), she photographed transgender prostitutes who posed on the remains of demolished nightclubs, their former places of work. The large-format pictures radiate pride and beauty, but also limitless loss - a strong statement for those who are excluded from society.
