The Mixe people speak one of the last living languages in the Mixe-Zoquean family and, through documentary, bibliographic and iconographic research, fieldwork and interviews, the team explores one of their myths, the myth of Kondoy. Thus, the project offers a new perspective on the history and current formation of global art through the notion of indigenisms from a critical point of view.
