Juan A. Gaitán, Maricris Herrera and Mariana Munguía



On the occasion of the 8th Berlin Biennale, Mexico City-based Artistic Team member Mariana Munguía and graphic designer Maricris Herrera collaborate on the publication Excursus. In contrast to a classical exhibition catalogue, the aim of this exclusively image-based publication is to function as a surplus venue of the 8th Berlin Biennale. Excursus is a book of visual propositions, with each participating artist invited to submit an original proposal covering up to four pages with various format options. Excursus creates a space that can travel and thus reaches beyond the immediate domain of the 8th Berlin Biennale as it is staged in the city of Berlin. Lasting beyond the duration of the exhibition as such, this compilation suggests a walk through the ideas traversing and intersecting the 8th Berlin Biennale while questioning the political and aesthetic force and autonomy of images.
