The artist is a witness of his or her time — bystander and critic, and above all analyst. The artist questions the cultural construction of history through art. Over the past few decades, shifts in the political, social, economic, and cultural landscape have shaken the American continent and the world. These changes — and their impact in the public sphere — provide recurrent themes in contemporary art.
These video works by Mexican artists reflect on communities in constant flux, facing critical situations and forced to find strategies of survival. As the Martinican novelist, poet, and critic Édouard Glissant once wrote, “The role of the artist is to do certain things in the spirit of imagination, and to change something on the visible level.”
