ZONA DE TOLERANCIA

The intention behind Zona de tolerancia (Tolerance Zone), a series of interventions on Mexico City traffic signs, was to reveal the different tolerance levels that coexisted within the city at the time for illegal activities related to violence, organized crime, and sex work, evidencing their geographically and socioeconomically distribution: while they were consented in certain neighborhoods, they were markedly sanctioned and condemned in others.
