Artists, curators, and writers from Vienna utilise the typology of the Zocalo as the place for their project at the Biennale in Xalapa. In a city without the Zocalo square, where everything social typically happens, we develop a series of performances, workshops, and exhibitions. A year of art-research supports these site-specific interventions and will contextualise the exhibition as a blog and book publication. This blog is the basis for this publication, a point of exchange for our artistic processes, and a resource for our cultural translations of Mexico for the Vienna Zocalo. Vienna Zocalo is developed over the course of 2010-2011 in the Department of Fashion and Styles at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.
