The Russian collective Chto Delat (What to Do?) is conceived as a self-organized platform for a variety of cultural activities with the objective of politicizing the production of knowledge. When We Thought that We Had All the Answers, Life Changed the Questions is a journey across the ample variety of media that make up their artistic production, from plays and video, to radio shows and murals, including art projects, seminars, advertising campaigns, newspapers, and educational platforms.
It is the first exhibition of this collective in Mexico that includes some of their previous seminal works and that focuses on their most recent production, including a new work developed from their interaction with the Zapatistas in Chiapas.
