E.D.E.L.O. Residencia

E.D.E.L.O. Residencia (Chiapas) – E.D.E.L.O. Residencia showcases a series of performances developed in collaboration with various autonomous communities in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, MX. E.D.E.L.O. (En Donde Era La ONU) is a Spanish acronym for, Where the United Nations Used to Be. Inspired by the 1994 Indigenous Zapatista uprising, E.D.E.L.O. investigates how art and artists can take on the supposed role of such institutional bodies, like the U.N., and create alternative systems in response to the violent and harmful ones in place.

Throughout its body of work, E.D.E.L.O utilizes the strategy of “Arte Urgente” (Urgent Art), an artistic practice created in Chiapas, MX developed to respond to immediate cultural, social, and political events while dealing with concept, radicalizing emotion, and craft.
