Mexico and Latin America are marked by social and political struggles, cultural and ethnic contrasts. With more than 300 indigenous communities that preserve pre-Hispanic traditions, living side by side with mestizos and foreigners, Mexico is one of the most diverse and complex countries in the world. This talk from Ana Casa Broda will look at how, in the last 15 years, the democratization of access to internet, social media and photographic devices have opened a new and amazing scenario in which communities outside the mainstream art scene in Mexico are creating new representations that address their own cultural and personal identity in ways that integrate their ancient cosmovision with contemporary photography.
This two-hour talk and Q+A is part of a series of eight aiming at creating connections between the processes of making work and how local, international, ethical, creative and commercial concerns overlap in the showing, publishing, and dissemination of work. The talks will examine the photobook, the exhibition, the archive, collaborative work, the photo-festival, power, and regional identities. Each talk stands alone, but forms part of the series.
The series runs from 3 March-21 April and is available at a discounted rate when compared to attending each talk individually. See details of the full series here: https://rps.org/looking3
