Relating both to Barragán’s personal archive in Mexico, and his professional archive - currently owned by the Barragán Foundation in Switzerland under the auspices of Vitra - Magid interrogates questions of cultural copyright and corporate power in relation to individual identity and legacy. For the performance Woman in Sombrero, Women in Sombrero, works from the professional archive will be presented and discussed.
