43 is a public intervention, a photographic portrait and a call to action…  

Venice Biennale May 6-10, 2015

Conceived as an art campaign, “43” is an ongoing collaborative work based on the simple premise that we all share a destiny for which we are collectively responsible.

On September 26/27, 2014, 43 Mexican students were kidnapped from the village of Ayotzinapa in the state of Guerrero. Although presumed to be murdered no proof of their disappearance has been found, and so they continue to be officially missing. The case of the 43 has become a rallying cry as millions of Mexicans say “Ya me cansé (I’ve had enough)!” to protest the gruesome narco-state violence and demand justice. Beyond its local resonance, this should have urgency to all of us, as our communities and cities’ face drug epidemics, gangs and gun violence, money-laundering, gentrification and state corruption. The meaning of 43 is global and it impacts us all and we should all say “enough is enough!”
