Spanish vanguard artist Antoni Muntadas has long considered the process of language and translation as his base materials. In a 1995 manifesto, the artist proclaimed his concern with the way in which the transmission of information through different systems and its subsequent translation can transform, fragment, deform and even obscure or censor any original meaning. Since then, Muntadas' work has continuously been fed by such concerns. This current catalogue is no exception. An extension of Muntadas' recent solo show at the Laboratorio de Arte Alameda in Mexico City, this publication offers a critical view of what the artist proposes in his deconstruction of language.
