Percibald García, State of Mexico, (2020) - To know the defects of a society, one must observe its buildings; to know its virtues, one must tear them down. The earthquakes of September 19 in Mexico made evident the most acute problems of our country, but also its greatest virtues, such as the solidarity present in its population. Events with the destructive capacity of an earthquake, manage to affect both physical structures - the houses and buildings - and invisible structures - the social fabric. It is in these moments, where the community spaces are vital for the recovery of a society battered by tragedy. Protopías is a narrative project that seeks, through catharsis and collective memory, to reconstruct the vital space of a community affected by the loss of a home, a school, a significant building. Using different techniques of artistic expression such as writing, modeling, painting and drawing, structured as a participatory process of reflection and mourning, it confronts and overcomes the trauma in community, to then shape a reconstruction project, now outside.
