Teresa Margolles Exhibition at Kunsthalle Krems

Pista de Baile del club Nancy’s, 2016 (C-print)

The exhibition at the Kunsthalle Krems focuses on a recent topical aspect of Margolles’ work: the nearly hopeless situation of transgender prostitutes in Ciudad Juárez, the city with the highest rate of violent crime in Mexico. For her series Pistas de Baile (2016) she took photographs of transgender prostitutes posing on the remnants of demolished discotheques and nightclubs where they used to work.
