Protesting citizens took to the streets throughout Mexico in solidarity against the drug-war violence that resulted in the kidnapping of 43 students from a rural college a year before. The indignation at the complicity of the government and drug cartels has sparked a flurry of art-making: banners, murals, posters, masks, and installation art. The 43 students have become a symbol of national outrage, the number “43” and the likeness of the innocent victims have been subsumed into the protest vocabulary.
