Pedro Reyes: Return to Sender

The exhibition is the fifth in a series, in which each episode focuses on one particular aspect of Tinguely’s work "Mengele-Dance of Death"

Museum Tinguely, Paul Sacher-Anlage 2, 4002 Basel, Switzerland

The invitation to Reyes to develop a new work for Museum Tinguely follows on from an earlier work from 2012. For the work group “Disarm“, he was able to use 6,700 weapons confiscated in the Mexican drug war and transform these into musical instruments.

For his works, the Mexican artist Pedro Reyes uses architecture, sculpture, video, performance, and participation to promote collective and individual power of action in political, social, ecological, and educational situations. His projects take place in the research field between a socially shaped understanding of architecture, the sensual and symbolic dimension of sculpture, and a decidedly political stance that adopts a radically humanist and Marxist position.
