UN Development Goals
Client: PNUD with CFCE Antigua
Is it necessary to apply the U.N. Development Goals in Guatemala?
My colleague, Ana Cristina García-Cabezas and I were hired by PNUD and The Cooperación Española of Antigua Guatemala, to Illustrate our opinion on why this would -or would not- be necessary. Since young we have all learned to be mind-full when talking about religion, sports and politics. This project clearly had a very political nature to it, so we decided, in order to faithfully serve as "Social Mirrors"(with a hint of our opinion), to use the different official newspapers of Guatemala as creative triggers. After exhaustive and emotionally exhausting research, we created illustrated collages of what the result of this research permeated in us. Here are the ones I presented:
Its worth mentioning that the work was to be exhibited for 2 months in The Cooperación Española, but due to its popularity, it stayed for 6 and now travels around the country in universities and other, as a social sensitizing tool. Also, originally, some of my images were censored, to then be opened to public and cause more of a powerful effect.
