Story: Whether in film, visual art, food or fashion, Mexico’s cultural products showcase its diversity and heritage. In our era of globalisation, in which disparate cultures are increasingly mixed, Mexico never forgets where it comes from. The country’s past is essential to understanding its present; that our ways of being and thinking are defined to a great degree by history.
If you’re looking for a metaphor for this Mexican mindset, consider the braid. In addition to being a typical hairstyle, it is a symbol that reminds us that the past and the present, and life and death, are intermingled in such a way that they become a single time.
Such an outlook can be seen in Mexico’s celebration of life through fiestas as well as in its music, its cuisine and its rich traditions. Mexico is an antidote to our homogenised world.
