Sublevarte Colectivo’s 2012-NY-MX is a 23 page 24 cm x 14.2 cm book of art on assorted paper contained in a corrugated fiberboard box compiled by nine Sublevarte Colectivo artists. The work was catalyzed by a Sublevarte residency and exhibition at the Interference Archive in Brooklyn and in conversations with Booklyn’s directing curator Marshall Weber.

Sublevarte Colectivo believes that the graphic arts should be a tool for both communication and social change and that at this point in global culture the power of visual information is stronger than text. This vision has powered their work with the Zapatistas in Chiapas, the flower sellers of Atenco, the striking teachers of Oaxaca, and dozens of other social struggles in Mexico.

“Our world is a space to express dreams and reality. We believe in an organization that is active every day and never gives up. Each line, color, and shape frame our destiny and the world we wish to create.”
