Since its inception in 1993, Art & Idea has been the focus of numerous articles in magazines and newspapers worldwide. In Mexico, from the main newspapers such as El Universal or Reforma, to Curare, with articles written by leading critics such as Cuauhtémoc Medina or Carlos Aranda, e.g. on some of the first solo exhibitions by Santiago Sierra and Damián Ortega. Mur Island by Acconci Studio received acclaimed words from international architecture as well as art magazines like Wallpaper, Metropolis or Abitare. Art & Idea’s projects have also appeared in international press like Frieze Magazine, Art Review, Art in America, Art News, Springerin, Flash Art, newspapers such as The New York Times (USA), El País (Spain), Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany) and Der Standard (Austria), as well as television segments on ABC News, Arte, Canal 22, Canal 11, TV Azteca, 3SAT, Austrian Public TV and Radio as well as all major TV networks in Japan.
