SILVA LONDONO, Diana Alejandra. Street Art at the Border: Representations of Violence and Death in Ciudad Juárez. Frontera norte [online]. 2016, vol.28, n.55, pp.33-52. ISSN 2594-0260.

The purpose of this article is to interpret the various meanings that violence and violent deaths have in Ciudad Juárez, through their representation in street art. Using in-depth interviews, participant observation, explorations of the city, and a photographic record of the artistic displays of border street art collectives, the way youths perceive themselves is explored, including how they see their biographical experiences and the agency of their art in contexts of violence.

Keywords : street art; violence; death; Ciudad Juárez; Mexico.
