¡MADRES! Madre por un día en el Carrillo Gil

Monica P. Mayer. ¡MADRES! Madre por un día en el Carrillo Gil, 1987.

Description:
This is another performance of the ¡MADRES! project of the feminist art group "Polvo de Gallina Negra," integrated only by Maris Bustamante and I. Actually, the only way anyone else could join the group was if we had given them birth. In this performance we are naming designer Luis Soto and performance artist César Martínez as Mother for a Day. During that performance we also signed a contract that when Maris dies, if I'm still alive, I will spread her ashes at peak hour in the most visited underground station in Mexico City. If I die before, she will spread mine at the Famous persons Monument (Rotonda de las personas Ilustres). At the time it was still the Famous Men Monument, and included very few women.
