Miguel Buenrostro, 1984

Throughout my career I have worked as a film director - video artist, spatial practitioner and activist in Mexico and the United States.

I am interested in exploring the many possibilities of transmedia approaches towards  Migration, Memory and the Archive as a political language.

My bottom-up mapping method “Exploration, Aesthetic, Memoir, Narrative” was developed during the documentation and transformation of Tijuana’s violent real estate development boom.

My  lecture- performance “Destruction of Memory” was held at SCI-Arc University in Los Angeles California and San Diego State University.

I am co-creator of the “Nuevo Norte” infrastructure for migrants. Rethinking the cultural relationship between the city and migration.

My current work “Disfuncionalista” architecture of repression was part of the exhibition series of the 100 years of Bauhaus in Weimar Germany.
