"Who is the Chingada? Above all, she is the Mother. Not a Mother of flesh and blood but a mythical figure. The Chingada is one of the Mexican represen- tations of Maternity, like La Llorona or the "long-suffering Mexican mother" we celebrate on the tenth of May. The Chingada is the mother who has suffered—metaphorically or actually—the corrosive and defaming action implicit in the verb that gives her her name..."
- Octavio Paz, 'Los Hijos de la Malinche'

The featured artist in the new Issue 20 is Miguel Rivera (Kansas City, MO). Miguel's work has taken him from his home in Mexico to Oregon and now to Kansas City where he is the Chair of the Kansas City Art Institute printmaking department. His work combines relief printing, digital drawing, etching and monoprint to create prints that resemble geometric storms of crackling electricity, referencing structures of power, and blending traditional printmaking practices with current technologies. Don't miss his wide-ranging and insightful interview in Issue 20 of The Hand Magazine!! Available for pre-order now, here: http://www.thehandmagazine.space/issue-20-purchase-and-artist-links/

"In 1522, amid the ruins of the Aztec empire's capital, Tenochtitlan, a boy was born to an Amerindian woman named Malinche. This woman is often viewed as both the great betrayer of Mexico as well as one betrayed herself by the stewards of colonialism. The child's father was the infamous conquistador Hernán Cortés and this boy would come to be known as one of the first mestizos (mixed race) of Mexico. Martín Cortés would become a shadow figure living on the fringes of history and as such his story represents a biographical curio.
.
Burdened by the heavy hand of its own antiquity, Mexico is also a shadow seeking the light of historical analysis, and Martín Cortés serves as the ideal symbolic mirror from which it can cast its reflection. But like so much of Mexican history (or at least our attempts to understand it), Cortés' life remains mostly hidden under a veil of resistance and obscurity." - David Hellman.

"History is wonderful, but nebulous; hard to fathom, but even harder to 'see'... This project is my attempt to look history in the face [...] and to see the ways in which the past has been passed down to us." - Drew Gardner. ▪

"In my opinion, art from Africa remains still largely burdened by negative social, political and economic realities from its mother continent, hence, is unable to be judged by its own merit and without negative bias or condescending patronage. However, Africans must take the responsibility upon themselves to project their own art and learn to value them as one of their greatest cultural exports." - Peju Alatise. ▪
