IRREVERSIBLE is a global participatory art project and magazine seeking to inspire engagement through art.
The definition of art and the role of art in a changing society are among the questions we debate with our work.
Art is usually a criticism of the world as it is and a vision of the world as it might be. To me there is no meaning,
either in art or in society, without participation, “What sparks engagement is something that speaks to you personally”
big part of our IRREVERSIBLE mission.
IRREVERSIBLE is also devoted to producing unusual magazines and printed matter in large size suitable for numbered Limited Edition distribution. These projects are created mostly on the premises of artists studios, in this particular caseour Limted edition Frida Kahlo wooden boxes transfer photography interventions were produced by artist Aida Tejada and founder Publisher/Editor Noor Blazekovic.
The city is officially divided into 16 delegaciones (boroughs) which are in turn subdivided into colonias (neighborhoods), of which there are around 250; however, it is better to think of the city in terms of districts to facilitate
the visitor getting around. Many older towns like Coyoacán, San Angel and Tlalpan got merged into the urban sprawl, and each of these still manages to preserve some of their original and unique characteristics.
Centro Historico Where it all began. Historic city center that is focused around the Zócalo or Plaza de la Constitución and extends in all directions for a number of blocks with its furthest extent being west to the Alameda Central.
Many historic colonial landmarks, and the famous Aztec Templo Mayor, can be found here.SAD STORY BEHIND: After the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, the conquistadors decided to build their church on the site of the Templo Mayor of the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan to consolidate Spanish power over the newly-conquered domain.
Hernán Cortés and the other conquistadors used the stones from the destroyed temple of the Aztec god of war Huitzilopochtli, principal deity of the Aztecs, to build the church

Mexico City, at Centro Banamex, the largest contemporary art fair in Mexico and one of the most famous in Latin America, Zona Maco, April 18th 2012 was inaugurated.
what is Zona Maco? “Zona” means zone and Maco is an acronym of México Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico Contemporary Art).
The fair started in 2004 as an “old-fashioned point-of–purchase model” , but it has managed to transcend that initial state into a “pure, nearly dematerialized event” (description by the guys of ArtForum.)
What is true is that Zona Maco has reinvented itself many times in these NINE years of existence, and has become now a huge international event. This year the fair included “more than 90 galleries from
around the world, representing more than 1000 artists.” Zona Maco 2012 strongly leaned towards conceptual art.
- The Publications Section included more than 40 press and internet media outlets, both national and international.
