Jose Castillo and Pedro Reyes discuss “Tlatelolco and the localized negotiation of future imaginaries”
March 13 2008
Artist Pedro Reyes and architect Jose Castillo discussed Museo Tamayo’s Museum as Hub presentation “Tlatelolco and the localized negotiation of future imaginaries.” Tlatelolco has been a significant cultural site since the Aztec period, closely identified in the twentieth century with modernist urban planning ambitions in Mexico and student demonstrations and killings at the time of the Olympics in 1968. A site rich in the complex layering of constructed histories that define contemporary Mexico, and a current active context for cultural production, Tlatelolco inspires consideration of the construction of future possibilities for Mexico as it looks to define its place within an increasingly globalized world.
