2018, HERE WE ARE

Is a search to represent in a world full of delusional representations, from politics of candidates for President that seem more like a photo session for Paris Hilton than the representatives we need, bur also the images of cyphers of disappeared persons: a detailed audiovisual tale about how the bodies of three filmmaking students disappeared, citizen mobilizations or the taking of the Niños Héroes (Boy Heroes, a Mexican historical myth) roundabout in Guadalajara, to produce an anti monument that shouts us a phrase: crisis in representation.

Producing a representation implies breaking representation itself in order to let the hilarious, the grotesque and the ironic tear apart the image. In this attempt, copies, divergencies, covers and versions appear.
