ALUMNOS 47: REBARDEANDO

FUNDACIÓN ALUMNOS47 | November 16th, Lisbon Architecture Triennale

Fundación Alumnos47 and El Proyecto Sonidero present ‘Rebardeando/Rebarding’, a work dedicated to the painting of walls or fences, traditionally used as mass media for dan­ces of sound systems (sonideros) and northern or rock mu­sic concerts. An element that was ubiquitous in Mexico City, the walls or fences have been progressively displaced to the margins of the metropolis.

The project consisted in taking the logos of the institutions participating in Close, Closer: The Institute Effect of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale and in­tervene them, creating designs in synch with this particular popular aesthetic that prevails in those paintings. These lo­gos were then painted in October 2013 on a wall of Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl, a suburban area of Mexico City, with the support of local painters ‘Publicidades Rance’. This whole process was documented by photography and film and will be presented at MUDE, Lisbon.
