Martínez césar, Inflación.jpg

(b. 1962, Mexico City) is an interdisciplinary artist and teacher at Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, currently pursuing a doctorate at the Universidad de Castilla la Mancha in Spain. His performance and visual work engages with the socioeconomic and political climate of capitalism, particularly in Mexico. His work tackles diverse economic, social, and cultural challenges in Mexico and across the globe in the last decades. Examining the logic of provocation, criticism, and disorder, he utilizes multiple methods in order to tackle themes such as the social repletion before a failed system, the failure of institutions, globalization, multiple devaluations, and the subsumption of the Mexican government to the U.S. government. Martínez’s solo exhibitions include Edición del Festival Internacional Cervantino, Guanajuato, Mexico (2013); Centro de Arte México Madrid (2012); Museu Nacional do Conjunto Cultural da República do Brasil (2009); and Galería Saro León, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain (2007).
