Edited and with introduction by Clara Kim. Foreword by Olga Viso. Text by Patricia Falguiéres, Sergio González Rodríguez, Catalina Lozano, David Miranda, Verónica Gerber, Abraham Cruzvillegas.
Published on the occasion of the artist’s first major survey, this volume explores the rich terrain of Abraham Cruzvillegas’ (born 1968) work over the past ten years, rooting his sculptural language within the volcanic landscape of his childhood home in Ajusco, Mexico. The publication elaborates on Cruzvillegas’ interest in autoconstrucción, a construction method arising from the constraints of poverty, in which parts are recycled and adapted for new purposes. Developed in collaboration with the artist, the volume features five essays examining autoconstrucción through the lens of art history, politics, architecture and urban migration in Mexico in the 1960s. Along with these texts, the publication includes sculptures by Cruzvillegas; snapshots of Ajusco, Mexico, taken by the artist; archival images of Ajusco from the Cruzvillegas Fuentes family album; titles that inform and inspire the artist's thinking about autoconstrucción; silkscreened posters of liberation movements in Latin America; and the artist's index of concepts and song lyrics written as allegories of his childhood. Bilingual (English/Spanish).

This scrapbook documents Abraham Cruzvillegas and Dr. Lakra's recent and provocative exhibit of drawings, sculptures, objects and miscellany at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oaxaca, Mexico, and honors the ongoing collaboration of which it is a part, a 20-year friendship here blossoming into public collaboration for the first time. Los dos amigos is an excellent introduction to two of Mexico's most interesting contemporary artists.
