Dual Program, Lab + Tlaxcala3, MX, City

The Lab Program: Art-Research & Mobility Network, México City

No Funding
Ciudad de México , Mexico


The dual artistic mentoring program run by Tlaxcala 3 + Lab Program, facilitates a partnership to develop critical skills and sensitive tools, where the concept of archive is presented as an opportunity to experiment and reflect on the role of memory in artistic creation. This dual program aims to unravel the hidden layers of meaning, secrecy, and control often found within institutions, discourses, and social and spatial practices addressed in the conventional notion of archive. Hierarchies and contradictions presented in texts and discourses, which, through simulation and the modern concept of reality, allow us to question concepts such as authenticity and truth in an era of simultaneous images, signs, multiple temporalities, and spaces. We invite all individuals interested in questioning by using art practice, spreading rumors, unfolding archives, to redefine the contemporary conception of the archive in spatial practices, and various materials, to share your application
