* "Art & Revolt" Talk/Discussion Description:

Sublevarte Collectivo, a group of graphics creators, emerged during the student movement of 1999-2000 at Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (National Autonomous University of Mexico). Its work is the result of solidarity and accompaniment with various resistance struggles. The collective will present some of these uprisings, and the graphics used to join and su
pport them, such as the Zapatista movement, which represents the ideological base of the collective, the struggle to defend the land in San Salvador Atenco, and the resistance of the people of Oaxaca, among others.

Sublevarte has maintained a horizontal way of working, and has built close ties with many collectives in Mexico to collaborate with them. Also, it has participated in many of the expressions of resistance throughout Mexico.
