In November 2014 Mario Asef (born in Argentina and currently a Berlin local) performed an artistic residency at Casa Imelda in Mexico co-financed by the German institute IFA –Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen. During this period he developed the project: Loteria Nacional.
The project refers to the symbolism of the public space and it is structured in three chapters or different moments. First, through the introduction of graphic works pasted to the walls of the Santa Maria la Ribera borough. Then, Asef usurped particular urban situations with video documentation. Thirdly with the intervention of the megaphone in a second hand trading truck to communicate a new message within that context.
In December 2015 some to the pieces where shown at UNARTE, an art university in Puebla, Mexico.
