“Citámbulos – A Journey to the Mexican Megálopolis” is a humoristic and yet rigourous expedition into Mexico City. This Latin American metropolis is often described as a vast Pandora’s Box containing all the evils of the world. Looking closer, however, one finds a wild sprouting city, driven forward by the initiatives and creativity of citizens, architects and urban planners.

The exhibition is an encounter between contemporary art, cultural history and urban research. Through cultural objects, video, soundscapes, photography, installations, and art pieces made by more than a hundred artists and collaborators, this exhibition invites us to explore innovative and bewildering responses to the contemporary challenges of our urban world through the lens of Mexico City.
