Power, energy, critical capacity and subjectivity are issues present in the work of Edgar Cobián, and in his creative processes. During his residency at the José Clemente Orozco Workshop Museum, these notions were detonated from a series of events (essays, sketches, references, works) closely related to politics. And above all, with a philosophical background that emphasized our relationship with a system that configures us, and which we welcome.
