Teresa Margolles - "What else could we talk about?"

Teresa Margolles' work, presented at the Mexican Pavilion in the 2009 Venice Biennale, chronicled the violence provoked by the battles of drug traffic organizations and their prosecution in Mexico at the present.

This video documents the daily performances where the floors of the exhibition space are cleaned with a mixture of water and blood from murdered people in Mexico. Performed by relatives of the victims.
