Visit to the exhibition “They were guided by a star”, by Elsa Chabaud, in the Photography Archive Museum


On May 11, we had the opportunity to tour the exhibition. They were guided by a star, with which the Photography archive museum restarted activities after a pause due to the pandemic in Mexico City.

The exhibition is a journey through the documentary work of the Mexican photographer Elsa Chabaud that addresses the office of being the Magician King in the City. Museum staff welcomed us to give a guided visit to some of the valedores who shared their experiences on the theme of the exhibition. In addition, we were able to learn more about the process of cataloging the enormous collection of the museum, which contains more than two million photographic images that are an invaluable account of the changes that have occurred in Mexico City throughout more than 100 years.

We thank the museum staff for their attention and welcome, and especially its director Daniel Vargas. The space is currently operating, and awaits you with the doors open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.

    On Wednesday, October 27, we visited the facilities of the Tecnológico de Monterrey with the purpose of recording audiovisual material with which we will promote a collective activity that we will soon tell you about.


    This Thursday, October 28, the valedores mounted the Day of the Dead altar, an important occasion for many of them since they remember their loved ones while living together in a healthy and safe space. This activity was the preamble to a skull writing (traditional poetry) workshop that will be held on Tuesday, November 2.
