A neighborhood, or barrio, is much more than a territory. Above all, a barrio is the receptacle for the flow of interests, traces, emotions, reconfigurations, negotiations and conflicts that constitute a community. Santa María La Ribera is currently defined by the density of its community fabric, resulting from social and economic transformations that occurred over the century since its establishment as an affluent “suburb” of Mexico City in the 19th century. This very diverse social structure—mostly shaped by families and individuals of limited financial resources—has been articulated by independent civic and political initiatives, resulting from increasing social pressure and from self-management consensus aimed at overcoming or mitigating the social and economic vulnerability in the area. Casa Gallina’s creative processes are designed to emerge from, and be a part of those vibrant groups and networks that comprise the neighborhood, energizing daily challenges and the communitarian spaces of the area. The creative process of the different curatorial platforms of the project —Commicions, , Saberes ( Shared Knowledge) and Synergies—will simultaneously weave and reveal new neighborhood networks through dialogue based on inter-subjective group frameworks.
