Damariz Damken, 2019

Damariz Damken is an artivist from the Rio Grande Valley Frontera of South Texas. She graduated from New York University in May 2019 with a concentration in Politics, Rights, and Development and Latin American Studies. Growing up on both sides of the border as a first-generation citizen from a Mexican immigrant family and daughter of undocumented parents, her work explores fronterizx landscapes to reclaim and deconstruct hemispheric border imaginaries as an approach to social justice and human rights.
