Arte y Resistencia: Acción pública

El 30 del julio de 2010 los estudiantes del curso de “Arte y Resistencia” participaron en una acción pública dirigida por Jesusa Rodríguez, realizando la visión de ella después de una serie de talleres y discusiones. Los participantes llevaban máscaras de calaveras y caminaban por las calles de San Cristóbal, llevando una tela roja que cubría la calzada. En el centro de la procesión había una mujer desnuda cubierta en flores que los participantes llevaban en una tabla de madera. La procesión sombría avanzaba silenciosamente mientras algunos estudiantes dieron flores al público y explicaron los motivos que los habían llevado a tal acción: la necesidad de hablar en contra de las matanzas en México y de denunciar el feminicidio en el país y en el mundo.

 

On July 30, 2010, the students involved in the “Art and Resistance” course participated in a public action directed by Jesusa Rodríguez in which they carried out her vision after a series of workshops and discussions. The participants wore masks depicting skulls and walked through the streets of San Cristóbal, carrying a red cloth that covered the road. In the center of the procession lay a woman covered in flowers that the students carried on a plank of wood. The somber procession advanced silently while a few students handed out flowers to passers-by and explained the motivations behind the action: the necessity of speaking out against murder in Mexico and to denounce femicide in the country and around the world.
