PROYECTOS COLABORATIVOS

Laboratorio de arte San Juan de Dios.

Desde sus inicios en el año 2013, en Guadalajara, México.

Se ha trabajado desde las pedagogías expandidas, un laboratorio de experimentación del arte contemporáneo dirigido a la niñez que habita y trabaja en el mercado techado más grande de América Latina, el “San Juan de Dios”.

En 2018 se ha publicado la versión editorial del catálogo de proyecto.

COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS

Laboratorio de arte San Juan de Dios.

Since its beginnings in 2013, in Guadalajara, Mexico. For San Juan de Dios Art Laboratory respect for otherness has been the most important within a framework of children's rights, a perspective of gender and dissent queer. It has worked from the expanded pedagogies, a laboratory of experimentation of contemporary art aimed at children who live and work in the largest roofed market in Latin America, the "San Juan de Dios" Market.

In 2018, the editorial version of the project catalog was published.
