Uncommon photobook promoting the Museo Tecnológico de la Comisión Federal de Electricidad (MUTEC). MUTEC was inaugurated in 1970 as Mexico’s first technology museum dedicated to modern applied sciences. In director Antonio Rodriguez’s introduction, he writes that MUTEC means to be a “living, dynamic, and open” institution that will promote the newest technologies through ample cultural programming.
The primary photographic section of the book documents activities at the museum, including kinetic art exhibitions, cinema festivals, expositions of industrial design, and concerts (including works of electronic music).
