Research Reventón is a collaborative project focusing on international border politics, initiated by Abigail Collins, Amy Sanchez, and Elizabeth Conn-Hollyn. In its first iteration it gathered eleven artists for an extended period in Tijuana to present individual works as well as communal discussions and workshops revolving around the questions of:
- (How) Does the presence of the border/borders alter our making/thinking?
- (Does) What are ways that our work and practice makes room for “the other”?
- How does the site of Tijuana/San Diego confirm/disavow/complicate the hegemonic narratives that we live/perpetuate?
The contributions and experiences were documented in the Research Reventón publication [.pdf]. The publication was translated by Antena, a language justice and language experimentation collaborative.
