Join Cog•nate Collective, SDSU Professor Norma Iglesias-Prieto, and students who participated in Otro Mundo Nos Espera for a discussion of their science-fiction collaborations exploring outer space, alien encounters, and the U.S./Mexico border.

Comprised of work that examines the complexity of the U.S./Mexico border, Otro Mundo Nos Espera shares the perspectives of individuals living along the border through sound collage, public interventions, and photo documentation.

Otro Mundo Nos Espera is on view in the Fayman Gallery at MCASD Downtown through Thursday, January 18, 2018.

More about the collaboration:

Through a two-year grant from the James Irvine Foundation Exploring Engagement Fund, MCASD is collaborating with social practice artists and college and university students to experiment and test new ways of engaging millennial audiences.
Working with the Movimento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán (MEChA) and Chicano Studies Professor Norma Iglesias-Prieto’s class, artists Amy Sanchez and Misael Diaz of Cog•nate Collective engaged in a collaboration with San Diego State University as they connected ideas of space and immigration as they pondered questions such as, “Who is an alien?” These investigations led them to develop a researched-focused and performance-driven project, where students donned spacesuits and helmets as they conducted interviews on SDSU’s main lawn.

More about Cog•nate Collective:

Cog•nate Collective is an arts collective based in the California-Mexico borderlands that develops research projects, public interventions, and experimental teaching programs to analyze social, economic, and cultural flows across the border. Their site-specific projects explore borderlands themes like migration, informal economies, and the construction of collective identities through popular cultural in order to examine the transnational communities that borders produce. They currently work between Tijuana, Mexico, Mexicali, Mexico, Santa Ana, California, and Los Angeles, California.
