The exhibit is about the the ephemeralness of reality, as represented mostly in photography: photographs developing, images which fade before they're finished, images which dissolve and others which change with the viewer's perspective. Metal disks reveal images when a visitor breathes on them.

In this 2008 article about a Muñoz exhibit in the U.K., the artist says his work presents a metaphor about Colombia's long armed conflict:
My work today arises from my interest in understanding how a society comes to accept war - or rather, a dark and corrupted succession of wars over more than 50 years and which have not yet ended - as part of the routine of living, where both the past and the present are plagued with daily violent events which are persistently repeated.

If you're into it, Muñoz's work is on display in La Casa de la Moneda until March 12.

Every time I visit the Botero Museum/Casa de la Moneda complex I'm impressed by the building's architecture, which mixes modern geometric lines and colonial sections.
