Mexican artist Minerva Cuevas (1975) presents her first solo exhibition in Germany as part of the DAAD Berlin Artists-in-Residence Program.

In search of an interface to activate social change, Minerva Cuevas work is based on interventions and the political action linked to the creative and artistic fields. With Schwarzfahrer are my heroes Cuevas takes as a challenge the creation of artworks specific for the context of the daadgalerie and the city of Berlin but achieving to reveal at the same time the universality of greed, love, and love to the revolution. The exhibition features five new projects for which the medium used ranges from photography and media campaigns to fortune cookies.

The Berlin Kunstlerprogramm sees itself as a platform for an exchange of art and culture extending beyond the boundaries of Europe. While cultural traditions are threatened by a uniform levelling out in the process of globalization, the Berlin Kunstlerprogramm promotes the diversity of artistic and literary positions. The notion of dialogue is central: other nations’ perspectives on conditions here – in film, art, literature or music – are to be seen as a decisive incentive to self-reflection in our society.

Opening: Friday, Sept. 10th, 2004 – 19:00
