Mariana Castillo Deball (Editor): Ixiptla Volume III

Ixiptla is a biannual journal about trajectories of Anthropology, it has been initiated by the artist Mariana Castillo Deball. The first issue is published on the occasion of Expedite Expression, 8th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, Berlin, 2014 while this volume was published in the context of the exhibition Who will measure the space, who will tell me the time? at Museum of Contemporary Art MACO, Oaxaca, Mexico.

Ixiptla III explores archaeological heritage and how it is expressed, is contaminated or dissolved in the present. Moosje M. Goosen tells the story of a German archaeologist and his collection of fake clay dinosaurs; Anne Huffschmid gives an overview on the history of forensic anthropology and its important role in Mexico nowadays in the study of the numerous mass graves and the case of the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa; Pablo Katchadjian asks: what to do?; Paula López Caballero tells the story of Luz Jimenez and her role as translator, model and interpreter, to understand different notions of indigeneity; Federico Navarrete Linares begins a dialogue between Bajtin’s concept of historical cronotrope and the Mesoamerican relation to time and space; Sandra Rozental compares the different use, categorization and display of archaeological Spolia in Coatlinchan and the Ethnographic Museum in Berlin; Carlos Sandoval creates an Anti Lego miss matching pieces from his family collection of archeological fragments; Adam T. Sellen makes an anatomy of a fake; Anna M. Szaflarski draws knots with different meanings building up an impossible body; and Laura Valencia Lozada writes a letter to the families to the disappeared in Mexico as the beginning of a longer conversation.
