press release

In Tinieblas (Darkness), 2009, starting with a series of reflections about the conflicts resulting from cross-border migration, Edgardo Aragón undertakes an investigation into the territorial limits of his city of birth, Ocotlán de Morelos, in Oaxaca, one of the largest states in Mexico. It is divided into 570 municipalities, some of which are wholly enclosed by others, leading to territorial conflicts relating to cultural diversity and to the politics of appropriating space, where the strategic and political code for establishing such limits is the mojón, or boundary marker.
