On Sunday 23 October, in Parc de les Tres Xemeneies (Paral·lel, Barcelona) Wallspot hosted the migration JAM 'ALL BORDERS ARE IN YOUR HEAD'. On this occasion, it was considered important to join the debate on racism, stereotypes, and the conceptual limits that we have internalised as a society, as well as to talk about migratory movements and the resulting humanitarian crises.
This JAM has been agreed with the collective Dos Latinas, a platform and foundation that works with artists, artisans and creatives to generate a diverse community using art as a tool for the struggle and defence of Human Rights. Thus, Dos Latinas has been key in this process to provide the JAM with a vindictive and critical content against social prejudices that often violate fundamental human rights such as religious freedom, sexual identity, gender equality or cultural diversity, while at the same time promoting diversity focused on Latin American dynamics.
In this event, we had Javirroyo and Killa.ek as guest artists. They have selected the rest of the participating artists: Lía Sabela, Silvia Ospina, Art3sano, Nino Werner, Mikhaela Martin, Luciana Luaces and Jaume Montserrat. All of them have highlighted diversity, the migrant experience, social prejudices, etc. on the walls of the park, incorporating a sensitising vision and inviting citizens to think collectively through art.
In addition, during the day Dos Latinas
offered a workshop on collage and migration led by Daniela Cuervo and Paula
Linares and a stencil workshop facilitated by Laura Castillo. Both were open to
the public. Slogans such as "Every north has a south", "If it’s
personal, it’s political”, and "We have never benn invisibles” were
painted on the walls of the Parc de les Tres Xemeneies.
