Guillermo Gomez-Peña,“On Fear of the Other”

From the Creative Time Archive:
“El Mexterminator” was an interactive performance series in 1998 that traced a new ethnographic and cultural map of Mexican New York. In part, artists Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Roberto Sifuentes’s extensive series included a live Internet chatroom, as well as a radio call-in show, during which individuals were encouraged to participate as their “favorite cultural avatars.” They discussed both their fears and desires of the cultural “other,” as well as reflected on the horror of a country perceived to be under seige by immigrants and people of color.
