Action art in Honduras.
“…the impact of the 2009 coup on local cultural production; undoubtedly, that was a breaking point in all areas of our lives and many of us reacted immediately; we took to the streets to protest and we were repressed in many ways. This forced us to rethink the role of art in the political struggle. A good part of the artistic community then joined the National Front of Popular Resistance and many became militants in Libertad y Refundación (LIBRE) party. A good part of this sector is outside of what you call “comfort zone”: La Organización Fraternal Negra de Honduras (OFRANEH), la Red Ma(g)dalenas, el Colectivo Las Hormigas, or los Muralistas de Cantarranas; all of them active in feminist and sexual diversity organizations, in mural painting or in popular education. I would say they are outside the radius of the hegemonic art of the called orange economy and nacionalismo de camiseta (T-shirt nationalism) which seek them circumstantially according to their interests. ” -Adán Vallecillo
