Abraham Cruzvillegas on Mexico City
The city and environment in which an artist lives and works naturally influences their ideas, their practice and their form. In a new series co-produced with the Guardian we explore the native or adopted cities of a range of major international artists.
We learn how each artist has identified and developed a relationship with the landscape and city they call home and how such connections materialise in their work.
In this episode Abraham Cruzvillegas explains how his practice of autoconstrucción evolved from the contradictory and precarious elements of life which give the city a new shape every day.
