Looking for Footprints in the Desert

Fundación Telefónica


Nasca was one of the most enigmatic cultures of the pre-Hispanic Andes. Since its discovery at the beginning of the 20th century, it has dazzled the world with its ceramics and fine fabrics, as well as the enormous drawings known as geoglyphs, which were captured on the pampas.

The exhibition space is structured around five axes related to this culture, its mythology, its rites or the importance of the landscape.

Exhibition curated by Cecilia Pardo, Deputy Director of the MALI Museum and Peter Fux, curator at the Rietberg Museum.

Organized by Lima Art Museum/MALI (Lima) and the Rietberg Museum (Zurich).

In collaboration with Bundeskunsthalle (Bonn) and Fundación Telefónica (Madrid).

Scientific cooperation with the German Archaeological Institute and the Swiss-Liechtenstein Foundation for Archaeological Research Abroad (SLSA).
