Can art affect life or at least give us a direction to change it?
Frontera. A Sketch of a Future Society, is a bilingual book with international contributions about an experimental public art project that tried to transform the everyday life in a Southern Mexican border in a little town called Frontera Corozal, in Chiapas.
This book aims to elaborate and theorise through essays, interviews, artistic documentation, indigenous stories, and poetry, on the contemporary art projects created within the lapse of two years.
This project won the Best Art Practices Award -given by the italian Bolzano Government in 2008- “…for the complexity of the themes touched upon and its innovative articulation… the ability to involve tradition and the local population in the process of creation and fruition of the submitted works; the innovative nature aimed at surpassing public art practices of the Nineties; the theme and, in particular, the investigation on the frontier question in an area with scarce media attention; the unusual ability to arouse feelings of freedom, imagination and poetry.”
