 Mexico’s zócalo is the political, economic and cultural center of the city from the pre-Hispanic period. Based on current videos and photos this presentation will cover different images in a long term period of the focal point of Mexican life. These images are part of the disputed representations of a past time, which continue to have effects on the present. Ines Yujnovsky will analyze the iconography of Mexico zócalo over a period of several centuries, to understand the interaction of social and political actors in the heart of a Latin American megalopolis.
