ÉDGAR J. ULLOA is a transdisciplinary artist and post-transborder poet from Ciudad Juárez, México. He maintains a blog (mijuaritos.wordpress.com) of aural, visual, virtual and performance poetry, that serves as a border trauma and memory reflection of his native city when it became the most dangerous in the world. In his work, he emerges as an explorer, producer of the aesthetic-historical, word-sign, word-symbol. He feels compelled to speak out through poetic performance action. His performances negotiate imperialist border politics, cultural memory, trauma and violence in addition to instigating audience and public participation. He is part of the 31st Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts in Slovenia.

Ciudad Juárez is the territory of the poet, composer and visual artist Édgar Javier Ulloa Luján. In his universe, he decides to interpret his concept of PATRIA as a word-symbol. There will be a Public Open Mic Session and performative intervention. The performative action will unite in the same moment the poetry of Edgar Ulloa and the voices of the viewers, generating a collective imaginary, re-interpreting collective memory and trauma across the border.
