"The Taller de Gráfica Popular (People’s Graphics Workshop) commenced its production in 1937, in Mexico City. The Collective not only focused its work on aesthetics, but on political movements, as well. It aspired to be useful in the struggle for liberation, and during 20 years of work, constructed a visual discourse on the Mexican Revolution.

CMYK is the product of a reflection that situates this private collection, along with the Collective and its means of production, in our historical context, and does so through the use of contemporary technology. I am grateful to the collector for the possibility of working with this material.

The images that appear in this book are fragments of the engravings of Ignacio Aguirre, Alberto Beltrán, Ángel Bracho, Celia Calderón, Jesús Escobedo, Sarah Jiménez, Javier Iñiguez, Leopoldo Méndez, Francisco Mora, Adolfo Quinteros and Alfredo Zalce."
