Artists from San Diego and Tijuana use technology, performance, and interactivity to address biculturalism, migration, labor issues, and human rights.

Subverting the title of one of the premier European art events, the Oceanside Museum of Art will present unDocumenta , an exhibition referencing the plight of undocumented people and highlighting the artistic production at the convergence of Latin America and Southern California. The San Diego/Tijuana region serves as a birthplace and rich experimental ground for individual artists and collectives such as the Border Arts Workshop and Las Comadres that have been concerned with topics related to biculturalism, migration, labor issues, and human rights. Grounded within that framework, unDocumenta will incorporate artworks by Mexican and Latino artists from both cities with a focus on the use of recent technology, performance, and interactivity. One such example is a work by Omar Pimienta, Free Citizenship , in which the artist sets up a Mobile Consulate at the museum, offering “citizenship” and a free passport to members of the audience in exchange for an old passport, allowing the viewer to think of the tenuous state of those who cross borders into the unknown. Other participating artists include Claudia Cano, Ana Teresa Fernandez, Dominic Paul Miller and Marcos Ramirez ERRE.
