Anno Domini // the second coming of Art & Design is proud to present an exhibit by the courageously vocal Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca (ASARO).
ASARO seeks to create awareness and generate ideas that help consolidate a contemporary ideology current, centered on humanistic values, in order to break the schemes imposed by the system and to generate a society free of alienation through revolutionary art.
Creative capacity is a strategy that historically has been used by the town of Oaxaca to survive and be revitalized. The Asemblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca (ASARO) arises from the need to reject and transcend authoritarian forms of power and institutional culture that has been characterized as discriminatory and dehumanizing, seeking to impose a single version of reality and a morality based on simulacrum.
Against the government's irrationality of holding itself in power, ASARO seeks to create images that synthesize the critical force that is born from the neighborhoods, the people and the youth.
We believe that public art (various artistic disciplines) is a form of communication that allows dialogue with all sectors of society, and makes possible the visualization of the real conditions of existence, norms and contradictions of the society we live in.
We take the form of assembly because we believe in the possibility of recovery of the community with the power of art, and because the assembly is the form in which the people come together and make decisions on collective interests. ~ ASARO
