The contradictory traits of an identity that is in continuous growth is reflected in this subjective atlas. It is a catalogue—always unfinished—of our likenesses and differences as Mexicans, questioning the collective values that we share, and the cultural image that we build around us. A varied group of artists, designers, photographers and other sensitive souls, chose personal topics as a starting point to map their cultural identity. The uncommon connections made in these visual inventories and representations reveal views that usually remain invisible. In the context of the Subjective Atlas of Mexico everyday practices suddenly take on new meanings. Through its pages the scope of Mexico as a country limited by its borders and its latitudes, vanishes to make senses and perspectives burst. We can find Mexico reflected in the world, and the world reflected in Mexico.
