Border artists are making an impact not just artistically, but also politically. In a situation where governments and politicians are either failing to deal with issues on the border of life and death, or are disinclined to even confront them, artists, writers, and performance artists are stepping up to the plate. In fact on the Mexican side they are at times, the only media that has not been silenced. A combination of terror and bribery has closed the Mexican border media down as far as relevant and true journalism… And yes, even in the art world terrorism and threats are very real.
There has been national coverage of “la frontera” as of late. The mainstream media has been attempting to be more relevant as of late in the United States
