Poınt of Entry

June 1985: National Geographic’s famous blue-eyed Afghan girl picture circulated worldwide. A few months later, Mexico City shook with the worst earthquake in its history.

The trauma still remains, intact.

Mediation started from young. Mexican Jew in a secular/catholic megalopolis, crisscrossed by cultural undercurrents, global tides. Grandfathers: marxist mathematic, architect. Father: family business consultant. Mother: sociologist.

Passed through many ports of entry. Tel Aviv, San Francisco, New York.

 

DEAR VISITOR: You are now in a frontier space, a border. Please, stand in line, refrain from taking pictures, state your route clearly, and provide all relevant documentation.
