Street Art-Actions: What remains after 50 years?

Curators: Rubén Ortiz and Rosa Landabur

On September 13, 1968, students organized the March of Silence in response to an affront by the President in his annual speech to the Mexican nation. The route they selected for the march began at the Museum of Anthropology and ended at the Zócalo, receiving the support of city residents as it made its way through the streets. Forty-six years later, another generation walked part of this route demanding justice for the 43 students disappeared in Ayotzinapa as part of an unpopular and unacceptable war. Yet the signs that the city emits today are very different. Are there traces of that event that took place 50 years ago? What traces can we recapture as we walk along the same route today? What other signs and traces might be activated with new interventions? What signs and murmurs? What illuminations?
