Ya me cansé (I’ve Had Enough)
Ya me cansé (I’ve had enough) is a public intervention, a photographic portrait and a call to action.Venice Biennale May 6-10, 2015
On September 26/27, 2014, 43 Mexican students were kidnapped from the village of Ayotzinapa in the state of Guerrero. Although they are presumed to be murdered and incinerated little proof of their disappearance has been found, and so they continue to be officially missing.
The case of the missing 43 students of Ayotzinapa has become a rallying cry as millions of Mexicans whisper or scream Ya me cansé (I’ve had enough) to combat the gruesome narco-state violence which continues to kill thousands in Mexico, a democratic country that has become a clandestine grave.

At the Venice Biennale cards will be handed out to visitors to initiate a dialogue. Interested participants will make the numbers 43 with their hands and pose for a portrait.
Two portrait sessions are scheduled:
May 7th from 2–3:30pm Arsenale
May 8th from 2–3:30pm Giardini
Exact locations T.B.D.
If you see us with the cards in Venice at the Arsenale or Giardini, please come and say hello. And please spread the word about Ayotzinapa through your networks.
