“Fragments of Mexican History,” an essay by Nicolas Bourriaud for Purple #36 the Mexico issue

“For anyone who had the bad fortune not to be born Mexican, there remains an imaginary Mexico. A place we can all conjure up in a few mental images. This country is a brilliant example of the fact that nations exist primarily in the form of fragments, shards, bits of code that intersect with a geography, which may or may not crystallize and enter the global consciousness.”

French art curator, Nicolas Bourriaud, stresses the significance of Mexican History and culture in his essay, “Fragments of Mexican History,” for Purple F/W 2021, the Mexico issue.
