Autopsia's demonstrations involve instalations, linking sound, vision and text. Music is accompanied by radical graphic design, films, special philosophical manifests, series of commercial prints,  graphic art, posters, etc. The visuals expertly circle around the legacy of the XX – century visual artwork.
