Atanas Mockus

Blood Ties

The former mayor of Bogotá (known for using artistic strategies in his politics) was invited by the Berlin Biennale to comment on an art project. He selected the work of Teresa Margolles, about the drug war in Mexico.

Visitors are invited to sign a declaration of commitment against drugs, and symbolically donate a drop of blood. With every signed commitment, the officer will make that the Mexican flag raise higher, lowering it with every reported drug death in Mexico.
