Directions to Museo Experimental el ECO
In 1952 the artist Mathias Goeritz met Daniel Mont, a Mexican entrepreneur interested in projects related with restaurants, bars, and art galleries. This patron commissioned Goeritz with the construction of a place that would help articulate the new relation between his commercial interests and the vanguard spirit of some of the cultural actors of the time.
Under the premise 'do whatever you want', Mathias Goeritz conceived the Museo Experimental el Eco, it makes its visitors to reflect their spatial experience in an emotional act. This space allowed its creator and his benefactor to found
a platform for art without precedent in the context of Mexican and international art in the 50's decade.
The Eco started as an experimental museum, one without a collection whose intention was to expand the languages of art, after it was a restaurant, night club, theater, and a venue of congregation for political activists. In 2005, the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) reopened its doors with the intention of reviving the architectural legacy of Goeritz, and above all, to give life back to a structure made initially to expand the languages of the arts.
