Such practices are displayed in two stages, related to the themes addressed by the artists: the production of works that deal with issues of denunciation and social criticism and those that explore the theme of collective memory. To support the above, the postulates of two main authors are taken up again: in the first instance, the work of Michel Foucault, his reflections on the societies of control and how their methods of domination detonate certain answers —within the system itself— to counteract them; on the other hand, the reflections of Anna Maria Guasch about art as a file, a concern of artists to create pieces in which information is stored, through which new perspectives on history are detonated. Finally, we will discuss about two cases in which the book art works as a means of denunciation, social criticism and collective memory: what happened to the 43 students of Ayotzinapa and the Mayan heritage, from which works are exposed at fairs around the world and integrated to university collections in different countries. Their stories allow to know characters and events of the 21st century Mexico from views different from the official versions, they protect them from disappearing and in this way they are integrated to the discourses of resistance. Este artículo aborda el libroarte en México en el siglo XXI como un espacio de resistencia, en el que se llevan a cabo prácticas que confrontan los mecanismos de poder. Tales prácticas se manifiestan en dos estadios, relacionados con las temáticas abordadas por los artistas: la producción de obras que tratan asuntos de denuncia y crítica social y las que exploran el tema de la memoria colectiva. Para sustentar lo anterior, se retoman los postulados de dos autores principales: en primera instancia, el trabajo de Michel Foucault, sus reflexiones en torno a las sociedades de control y cómo sus métodos de dominación detonan ciertas respuestas —dentro del propio sistema— para contrarrestarlos; por otro lado, las reflexiones de Anna Maria Guasch acerca del arte como archivo, una preocupación de los artistas por crear piezas en las que se almacena información, a través de las cuales se detonan nuevas miradas sobre la historia. Finalmente, se hablará de dos casos en los que el libroarte funciona como medio de denuncia, crítica social y memoria colectiva: lo sucedido a los 43 estudiantes de Ayotzinapa y la herencia maya, a partir de los cuales surgen obras expuestas en ferias alrededor del mundo e integradas a colecciones de universidades en diversos países. Sus relatos permiten conocer personajes y eventos del México del siglo XXI desde miradas diferentes a las versiones oficiales, los protegen de la desaparición y de esta manera se integran a los discursos de resistencia. 2019-01-01 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion https://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/hallazgos/article/view/4990 10.15332/s1794-3841.2019.0031.05 spa https://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/hallazgos/article/view/4990/pdf https://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/hallazgos/article/view/4990/html Derechos de autor 2019 Hallazgos http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 application/pdf text/html Universidad Santo Tomás, Bogotá-Colombia Hallazgos; Vol. 16 Núm. 31 (2019); 121-145 2422-409X 1794-3841 Hallazgos; Vol. 16 No. 31 (2019); 121-145
