Item description for Francis Alys: The Historic Center of Mexico City by Carlos Monsivais & Francis Detto Alys...
This visual travelogue of one of the biggest cities of the twenty-first century takes readers through the architecture and neighborhoods at its heart. Francis Als, a Belgian artist with a studio in Mexico City's title historic center, loves to wander, and to record what he sees in photography, videos, slides, drawings and paintings. Walking Distance from the Studio is, in his own words, "everything that I saw, heard, did or undid, understood or misunderstood, within a perimeter of ten blocks around my studio in the centro historico." Through all of this, Als remains an outsider and foreigner--his detachment lets him see and relay everyday things in new, poetic and often surprising ways.
