Over sixty years after the emergence of Concrete Poetry, the Museo Experimental el Eco proposes the publication of a series of serigraphy collections that inquire onto the evolution of this movement —of which Mathias Goeritz formed part— and the ways in which its initial postulates permeated through to contemporary culture.
The Eco Editions Club (Club de Ediciones Eco) is a fundraising project intended to support publishing projects that encourage the dissemination and preservation of art and culture, following its mission to expand historical and critical research around Mathias Goeritz, his context, legacy, and relevance. This Club is conformed by 30 members interested in art, collections, and in supporting the national cultural institutions. In return for an annual donation (tax deductible with a receipt from Fundación UNAM), each member of the Club will obtain a folder with graphic art from renowned modern and contemporary artists who explore the legacy and relevance of Concrete Poetry.
