Participating in the contingency. Painting, sweeping and cooking

Jaime Delgado Rubio


The aim of this article is to identify, document and analyse three participatory actions undertaken in Mexico. They offer an alternative ground for analysis and reflection, as they were conducted outside the control of the State, offering the possibility to use different methodologies that contain key elements to think about a reorganization of the existing relation between Institutions and society. Based on extremely simple principles of action (painting, sweeping and cooking) their effects can help reshape the value and use of archaeological heritage in Mexico.
