Participatory performance developed at Plaza Juárez in Guadalajara, Mexico. The project would begin with the appearance of a 1: 1 scale replica of the obelisk located in the plaza close to the statue of Benito Juárez. The object was installed on the ground with a new materiality, making this monument a malleable object close to the body. From there, what to do with it? This question sparked a series of discussions that turned into actions; Students together with members of the community meet to give voice and form to the ideas that were born from the transformation of this object. The work was proposed as an formative and performative project to imagine alternative models of monuments; transforming the obelisk in an assembly.

 

Project developed within Espacios Revelados GDL, together with the Goethe-Institut Mexiko, and Cultura Jalisco; with the participation of students from TEC, ITESO and ESARQ, together with members of the local community.
