Secrets was a site-specific project and exhibition by Iñaki Bonillas for the Casa Luis Barragán, Mexico City in 2016. Following years of research, Bonillas intervened into the negative spaces of Barragan's house, especially those which often remained hidden to a visitor’s view, such as closets, cupboards and drawers. These spaces served Barragán’s purpose of hiding daily life: the accumulation of objects, papers, useless things—in a word, disorder, to benefit the serene harmony of his architectural poetics. The artists’ book Secretos-Secrets is a continuation of this project, and refers to Marcel Duchamp’s publication Some French Moderns Says McBride (1922). It includes texts by Luis Felipe Fabre, Álvaro Enrigue, Mónica de la Torre, Tom McDonough, Manuel Cirauqui and Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba.
