Autorreconstrucción: detritus is a project to activate the MUCA space -in the heart of the National University-, and at the same time committed to one of the key problems that we live in this self-destructive megacity, which produces almost incomprehensible amounts of information every day and hour. garbage - the detritus of a consumer society that still affects a protected environmental zone such as the Ecological Reserve of Pedregal de San Ángel (REPSA) at the UNAM.


The discursive center is located right in the REPSA: it is the work that Abraham Cruzvillegas conceived, from the discovery of an unfinished wall of volcanic stone, pretending to complete it with rubble, gravel and garbage, coming from the same reserve. Inside the walls of the museum a number of artistic proposals unfolds, presenting approaches and alternatives to the issue and problem of garbage,  recycling" as art. They are changing works, in the process of metamorphosis, with unpredictable interactions, epistemic synergies, accompanied by events and daily activities- that celebrate the principle of self-construction, conceptualized and established over the years in many parts of the world by Abraham Cruzvillegas, as way of a permanent, demanding and also creative ontological instability.


In addition, this complex, contradictory, propositive exhibition, committed to human life on the planet during its late anthropocene phase, is an innovative initiative that is configured without the straitjacket of a traditional curatorship, but develops with free dialogue between the participating artists and academics of the UNAM, mainly around the analysis of detritus as matter in transformation.
