El despacho, or "the office" is a project by the Mexican artist
Diego Guttiérrez, who always plays with the relationship between
maker and spectator in her projects.
The projects come into being in collaboration with writers, film-makers,
photographers, artists (national and international via RAIN) and the
citizens of a specific place, for example, Mexico City. Last year the
production of "6 documentaries and a film on Mexico City" was
produced in which an inhabitant of Mexico City, and his/her social environment,
are portrayed each time. The films are screened in the open air and
via public channels such as television stations, and the video tapes
are handed out free of charge.
