MERCEDES VOSTELL Ceclavín, Cáceres, 1933.
This schoolteacher’s life changed radically in the late fifties when she met Wolf Vostell in Guadalupe. Together, they founded the Museo Vostell Malpartida (MVM), a rare cultural project within the natural environment of Los Barruecos. The museum has been managed by the Junta de Extremadura (local government) since 1994.
She is the current artistic manager at the museum. She has written My life with Vostell. An artist of the vanguard (published by La Fábrica Editorial).
Mercedes is currently living in Malpartida, Madrid and Berlin.
