Estación Intergalactix Station receives and send messages from the future, building an open space of exchange and mutual learning.
ACCESS: Online Maps Collection (see below) or visit LACE Wed-Sun 12-6pm
As part of the ongoing research and exhibition closed in May 2021, Intergalactix: against isolation/contra el aislamiento continuously maps, collects and imagines genealogies of collective resistance against physical and conceptual borders, and against isolation. This allows us to generate memory and trajectories towards possible futures. The genealogies generated collectively and through personal retrospectives, take the shape of interviews, conversations, workshops, lectures, drawings, artworks, audio, and spiral maps.
Inspired by the Zapatistas’ encuentros intergalácticos, we use the action of gathering as a tool to map genealogies and construct solid relationships of affection. The project listens to Central American and Southern Mexico as the heart of the continent and moves in spirals expanding into different regions.
Honoring the work that many artists, cultural workers, and activists working around these topics have done, we continue to study and learn from their practice. Collaborations with milestone artists, poets, curators, activists, and thinkers, helps create a root system that holds the Intergalactix.
