Tequiografías Favorite 



Jan 1 2010



The artist in close collaboration with AMI (Assembly of Indigenous Migrants of Mexico City) has created a series of monographs made by students, through ‘tequio’: a communal system of organisation expressed in collaborative practices, mandatory and unpaid work. The goal of the project is to offer information about the lifestyle and culture of these indigenous communities, which live in Mexico City. These monographs are sold on the market, using the current system of distribution in stationery stores used in education. Each member of the group can contribute, share their information concerning various topics related to these communities.

The project seeks to demonstrate another way of understanding reality and offer an alternative to the current repertoire used in education models.

All information from Arte Util.
