The health crisis forced the MEXTRÓPOLI Festival to be rescheduled from March to September. However, months later, it remains an equally critical landscape. In Latin America, and specifically in Mexico, the number of infections continues to increase and the outlook does not present a close solution to the problem. That is why it was decided to move, once again, the Festival's face-to-face activities to March 2021, hoping that by then a safer scenario will be lived that allows to enjoy the activities already programmed, and some that can be added. then.
However, MEXTRÓPOLI is not postponed, it is transformed to continue building culture from architecture and the city. For this reason, today, September 7, MEXTRÓPOLI Online will take place, a 5-hour digital marathon that brings together great institutions, artists, architects, creators and scientists.
Among the guests are the Mexican architect Frida Escobedo; David Chipperfield; the writer and architect Beatriz Colomina; Dominique Perrault; the firm Al Borde (Ecuador); the sociologist Saskia Sassen; the Colombian professor and politician Sergio Fajardo; the biologist Luis Zambrano; activist Yásnaya Elena Aguilar; the curator and architect Mimi Zeiger; among many others.
