8th International Book Fair of the Palacio de Minería, in Mexico City

Dear friends,

I am pleased to invite you to visit the 38th International Book Fair of the Palacio de Minería, in Mexico City, which takes place from February 23 to March 6, 2017.

I present the book Boden, which you can find in the exhibitors located on the top floor, specifically in the exhibitor 1502 that belongs to the Faculty of Arts and Design / Artist books.

It contains texts and engravings before and after a series of performances with the same name that I made between 2014 and 2016. Closely linked with my experience of motherhood and the subject of cesarean, with the collaboration and teaching received from two extraordinary women such as Maria Milagros Rivera Garretas and Assumpta Bassas, and the support of my friend and colleague Marco Antonio García, who once again invites me to participate in this Fair.

In the making of the book I have used two old typewriters, and used teabag papers. I include texts by Maria Zambrano, Emily Dickinson and Luce Irigaray as well as mine, drawings, prints and a small object belonging to the penultimate performance that I made at the Schwere Reiter Theater in Munich in January 2016.
