Ayuujkjä'äy ëy konk. A fable based on a Mixe myth - MACBA -Exhibitions
11/10/2022 - 02/26/2023

This artistic project by Mariana Botey, in collaboration with Dr. Lakra, Taka Fernández and Brian Cross focuses on the Mixe people, the closest relatives and natural heirs of the Olmecs, the Mesoamerican mother culture. The Mixe people speak one of the last living languages in the Mixe-Zoquean family and, through documentary, bibliographic and iconographic research, fieldwork and interviews, the team explores one of their myths, the myth of Kondoy. Thus, the project offers a new perspective on the history and current formation of global art through the notion of indigenisms from a critical point of view.
