Resumen

CANTERO MEZA, Gustavo. The social path of culture and arts in Nogales: groups, artists, circumstances opportunities and reflections. Polis [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.43, pp.375-392. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682016000100018.

Mexico’s northern border has been interpreted as a place of stereotypes related with industrial development, violence and wildness, thus preserving negative meanings and black legends. This paper provides alternative views about the border that highlights its social sense, and social and human values as seen from artistic and cultural collectives in Nogales city. It is true that in Mexico’s northern border outrageous events that call for reflection and protest have occurred. But is also true, that border is not that place interpreted as isolated and culturally distant from global and Mexican reality. Border cultural and artistic expressions are unmistakable: they capture the sense of social problems and re-meanings them, collaborate with social analysis in regional and local scale, provide colorful identity in public spaces, mobilize new audiences and relates to participants/creators who organize themselves as civil society in order to cooperate with local government and ngos across the border.

Palabras clave : public space; collectives; ngos; border arts; border identity.
