Sergio Beltrán-García

(Mexico City, Mexico, 1988) Architect, activist and researcher. Sergio works closely with victims of human rights violations, their advocates and communities, using advanced technologies and transdisciplinary research methods in various political, cultural and legal forums. He uses memory as an access point to explore aesthetic and political practices of transitional justice. Sergio has contributed to the creation of 15 memorials to different violent events, both against and in collaboration with different levels of the Mexican government. He is currently working on the creation of El Bosque de la Esperanza, an ecosystem of virtual and physical, dispersed, self-managed, low-cost, modular memorials to commemorate the crisis of disappearances in Mexico. As a Chevening Fellow, he completed with honors his graduate studies at the Goldsmiths University of London, where he conducted research with Forensic Architecture. Sergio is now promoting the creation of a Mexican agency, in alliance with Forensic Architecture and Investigative Commons, that can offer forensic architectural accompaniment to those who suffer political, environmental, and gender-based violence in Mexico.
