Photos: Emilio Chapela Pérez: Es una catástrofe no encontrar terreno en común.  Walk from Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil to the Cerro de Xochitepec, 2017. This walk was an invitation to recognize the difficulty to separate the urban from the rural; the secular from the religious; natural from cultural; central from peripheral, individual from the collective, private from public, etc. It presented us with the opportunity to re-discover space and time from an earthly perspective. Walking is perhaps, an exercise that resists predetermination and that of its boundaries. It is a determinate/indeterminate act. We walked from the Museo Carrillo Gil towards the top of the Xochitepec hill: we didn't find much and we certainly didn’t see the same, but we did recognized a common ground.
