Mortuary Rituals 2017: Exploring the Idea of Death in Mexico, Special 2-in-1
International Program (October 9 to November 6, 2017) Puebla, Mexico


Special
2-in-1 International Program Includes Day of the Dead Arts Techniques
Instruction and Self-Directed Art Production. Why is the idea of Death
representing Mexico globally? This 4-week critical program addresses the
subject of Death as a national totem, by questioning its construction as a
macabre source of identity, exploring its relevance in the invention of Mexican
modern art and its secularization in popular culture. It explores the
performativity of rituals in Mexico and focusing on the mortuary celebrations
known as Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead).
