Museo Tamayo (Mexico City, Mexico)
Desde la perspectiva de is a 3-month project that collaborated with Francisco Lerios from Taller Tamayo and engaged the museum guards who work inside Museo Tamayo. Using design to learn their everyday realities as well as their understandings and observations of the museum, the project was also a meta-investigation of the difficulty of doing creative work inside cultural institutions.
We focused on the constraints that the museum guards experience on a daily basis, such as rules that prevent them from engaging in any sort of creative activity that may consequently distract them from their work, and developed site-specific methods and techniques for research. The outcome involved a magazine that was circulated publicly in Museo Tamayo and invited visitors to explore an alternative reading of the museum from the perspective of the people who work there everyday.
