Assembling Modernity in the Periphery of Mexico City
The ‘Peripheral Frontier’ investigates the relations between the production of space, periphery-driven politics, and the spatialization of difference (race, class, gender) in São Paulo
Theories and methods from anthropology, social history, and design activism.
The research takes the material solidity of concrete as an entry point to uncover the instability of the Mexican national-developmental project and the techno-political apparatuses required to sustain it.
Research project in collaboration with the students of the Escola da Cidade, University of Architecture, São Paulo (in progress).
