Insertions in economic
photo printing, text
Inspired by the work of Cildo Meireles Inserções em circuitos ideológicos 2. Projeto Cédula, Monroy inserted messages taken from demonstrations against drug cartel violence in Mexico into the same flow of the drug economic system. Monroy did this by sealing bills obtained on the black market on Benito Juarez Street in Culiacan, Sinaloa. These bills allegedly came from money laundered in that city. Monroy uses those sealed bills to buy a dose of cocaine in the United States by reversing the flow of money to insert these political messages back into this black market system.
