This book is double-sided (ie both covers seem to be the front cover), and the book contains two separate sections which are read from the different ends. One is Reliquias ("Relics"), which contains "La Prohibicion como Incitacion" by Cuauhtemoc Medina and "Abacos en el Castillo Vacio" by Osvaldo Sanchez. These sections are interspersed with photographs of artistic works and displays. At the end of these sections there is a translation into English ("Prohibition as Incitement" and "An Abacus in the Empty Castle" on yellow pages), but without the images being repeated. The work at the other end is Collares ("Necklaces"), which contains the single piece "Las Joyas de la Corona" by Kellie Jones, which is then translated into English ("Crown Jewels", again on yellow pages without the images interspersed).
Silvia Gruner (Mexico City, 1959) is a Mexican artist. Her work is multi-disciplinary and includes video art, photography, video and cinema, which she integrates into installations. Her work reflects on the individuality of the body and the community, mixing feminism and post conceptualism. She studied at the Massachusetts College of Art and at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Gruner worked in the 1990s in the search for new spaces of contemporary art exhibition in Mexico in the 90s, and her work influenced a later generation of creators. Her work has been exhibited in museums and art galleries in Mexico and in countries such as Spain, Cuba, the United States, Canada and Germany.
