press: venice biennale: attacking mexico, with mexico’s approval

The exhibition, “Until the Songs Spring,” aims to promote a “rich diversity and heterogeneity over one single way of seeing Mexico,” Mr. Marcin said. In other words, it presents not just a Spanish-speaking country with 400 years of post-conquest history, but also a collection of geographies that dates back more than 20 centuries and where 68 languages are spoken, each communicating a distinct way of seeing the world.

In that way, “Until the Songs Spring” — the title borrows from a poem written by the Indigenous ruler Temilotzin, who died in 1525 — bridges different periods.
