Museo Experimental El Eco

Founded in 1952 to promote artistic practices under the inspiration of emotional architecture by Matias Goeritz, El Eco is currently a museum devoted to interdisciplinary practices in contemporary art.

An outstanding example of twentieth-century Mexican Architecture, the Museo Experimental El Eco was by the German artist Mathias Goeritz and supported by the Mexican entrepreneur Daniel Mont, in the 50s.

Museo Experimental, directed by Paola Santascoy and Fernandez De Lara, presents temporary contemporary art projects by Mexican and international artists offering various contexts for new artistic practices, emphasizing experiment, emotion, and interdisciplinary thinking; its space continually takes inspiration from its unique architecture and the diverse conceptual interests of its founder, Mathias Goeritz.
