Regina Jose Galindo: Lesson Of Dissection

A new performance by internationally renowned artist Regina Jose Galindo, winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale 2005.

Taking inspiration from Rembrandt’s famous painting The Anatomy Lesson, 1632, Galindo’s performance explores the increasing professionalization of violence in Mexico and Guatemala, where drug cartels are hiring mercenaries to perform, with clinical precision, mutilations and other acts of violence.
