"In this edited volume, Polgovsky Ezcurra and her contributors look at the rise in the creation of community-focused art projects, from public cinema, to off-stage dance and theatre, and to the creation of anti-monuments that have redefined what public art is and how people have engaged with it within Mexico City in particular, as well as other regions of Mexico, since the 1980s. With a mixture of in-depth studies and artist dossiers, the manuscript is organized into five main sections: Historical Return, Infra-Political Art, the Infrastructures of Commoning, Forensic Publics, and Grassroots Memorials and Distributed Publics"-- Provided by publisher.
