Act II. Postcards from LatinAmerica

Collective performance to raise a living flag in front of the house of government of the city of Baltimore. Baltimore is one of the "sanctuary cities" of the United States, those that protect its inhabitants from federal immigration laws. This project seeks to reflect on the concepts of city, citizens and citizenship from the poetic gesture of the construction of the territory through the ceremony of raising a flag, a protocol act transformed into a playful action. What is usually a military ceremony here is transformed into a civic celebration; in an open project of overflowing; in an action impossible to contain.

 

Project developed with the participation of MICA students and in collaboration with MICA Day of Service, MICA Graduate Studies and Leslie King Hammond Fellowship Award.
