Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Ana Mendieta: Body Tracks at the Kunstmuseum Luzern, 19 October, 2002–23 February, 2003.

Considered a pioneer of performance art, land art and body art, Ana Mendieta left Cuba for exile in the US in her early youth and died under tragic circumstances in 1985. Linking avant-garde forms of expression with the spiritual mysticism of SanterÌa, a syncretistic religious movement, but also with issues of gender and questions of migration, her work is relevant still today.

With texts by Patrick Dondelinger and Laura Roulet.
