Yoshua Okon (Mexico 1970) is a Mexican artist. He is founder of the art spaces La Panaderia, which ran from 1994 to 2002 and SOMA, both in the Mexican capital.

Okon's work is in the collection of Museum like the Tate Modern in London, Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, LACMA in Los Angeles, Jumex in Mexico City or Collection Pierre Huber in Switzerland to mention a few.

Collateral tracks the politically-engaged video, installation, sculptural and photographic work of Yoshua Okon.

Collateral takes on convergences and casualties in the neoliberal economy, offering an archeology of the ruins and damages of global systems of exchange.
