Encompassing more than 150 works from the Daros Latinamerica Collection, the exhibition Dark Mirror provides a wide-ranging and multi-faceted glance at contemporary art in Latin America. Topics such as cultural imperialism, gender identity, social criticism, and political power as well as reflections on nature and urban existence are examined via a great variety of media: installations, objects, paintings, photographs, videos, and works on paper.
This extensive selection not only sheds light on parallels to the history of European art but also primarily on specific Latin American developments, particularly since the 1960s.
