This series of illustrations is the result of a project initiated in 2010 by invitation of Catalina Lozano at Gasworks, a centre for contemporary art in South London. In the project, Mexican artists Erick Beltrán (now based in Barcelona) and Jorge Satorre lay out a web of relations based on a shared interest in the methodology proposed by Italian microhistory; specifically a 1979 essay by Carlo Ginzburg. By commissioning Jorge Aviña to illustrate complex concepts through old-fashioned political cartoon and comic book styles, they tackle mythology, science, philosophy, popular fiction and cultural themes in an investigation into a new way of making history, following a detective process.
