“Money Talks”

Minerva Cuevas (Mexico)

Minerva Cuevas works at the interface between art and socio-political critique. Her work includes installations, videos and photography.

In her illustrated talk, Minerva Cuevas speaks about her research into the Weltkulturen Museum’s collections centered around notions of value, the use of “primitive” currencies and our contemporary ritual relationship to money and capital.

A new work by Cuevas will be presented as part of the forthcoming exhibition at the museum.

Minerva Cuevas lives and works in Mexico City. Her practice is characterised by socially engaged projects and site-specific actions. Her works allow the audience an insight into the complexities of  the economic and political organization of the social sphere and the gaps in its structures. She has had solo exhibitions in the Museo de la Ciudad de México (2012), Van Abbemuseum (Netherlands 2008), Kunsthalle Basel (Switzerland 2007) and has taken part in recent exhibitions at the Kunsthaus Bregenz, (Austria 2013), Centre Pompidou (Paris 2010), Whitechapel Art Gallery (London 2010). She was granted the DAAD residency in Berlin in 2004.
