The Proposal

Known as “the artist among architects,” Luis Barragán is among the world’s most celebrated architects of the 20th century.

Upon his death in 1988, much of his work was locked away in a Swiss bunker, hidden from the world’s view.

In an attempt to resurrect Barragán’s life and art, boundary redefining artist Jill Magid creates a daring proposition that becomes a fascinating artwork in itself—a high-wire act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art.

"Beguiling. An unforgettable consideration of who should have ownership of an artist’s legacy."

Stephen Saito, Moveable Fest

"The documentary doesn’t bring closure to her fight for Barragán’s archive, but it will work its way under a viewer’s skin and leave them with persistent ideas to consider."

Dan Schindel, Hyperallergic

"A thoughtful, elegantly hypnotic exploration of ownership, access, and moral responsibility...A multi-layered and thought-provoking work of art."

Allan Hunter, Screen International
