This article documents the work of the Border Arts Workshop/Taller de Arte Fronterizo (BAW/TAF) in the Poblado Maclovio Rojas, a citizens’ organizations of “land squatters” near Tijuana, Mexico. Throughout the study, I examine the forces that have affected the long-term collaboration between the San Diego-based grassroots cultural workers’ collective and the Poblado. The Maclovio Rojas-BAW/TAF partnership has taken its current shape within the larger context of a globalized capitalist economy that appropriates territories and breaks down national borders. Our collaborative project is one of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of other, similar transborder (Tijuana/San Diego border) partnerships.2
