Cortesía: Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco

This modernist architecture vestige hasn’t been able to go unnoticed over the last two years due to its bright light installation known as Xipe Tótec, by American artist Thomas Glassford, which surrounds the 22 story building.

Nestled on the edge of the housing unit that gives its name, the Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco offers three permanent exhibitions: the Memorial del 68 multimedia display, Colección Stavenhagen —prehispanic art—, and Museo Tlatelolco, conformed by prehispanic pieces located around the adjacent archeological site.

This place also houses a multidisciplinary and educational program that ranges from film exhibitions, debates, workshops, courses and seminaries given by the university itself, as well as entertainment events sponsored by private promoters. Since its inauguration in 2007, this enclosure has sought to be a pillar and a reference to the neighbors, considering the area’s scarce cultural offer.
