Débora Delmar

Débora Delmar’s work investigates the effects of globalization on everyday life in relation to consumer culture and society. She is particularly focused on the societal consequences, such as issues of class, cultural hegemony and gentrification. This is born from the omnipresent influence of the United States in Mexico, and in the wider world. Her work examines the contextual value of goods, analyzing their production, distribution, consumption and disposal.

A solo exhibition Delmar's work, LIBERTY, is taking place at the Museo Jumex, Mexico City in 2024.
