In the city of Oaxaca in Southern Mexico, capital of the federal state of Oaxaca, an uprising determined political, cultural and social life in the second half of the year 2006. During the uprising, the leftist Mexican daily newspaper La Jornada saw the spirit of Louise Michel, the activist of the Paris Commune of 1871 who presided over the nighttime barricades. Turning to artistic productions such as graffiti and street art, for instance, it should first be emphasized that the artistic works created directly in conjunction with the movement are to be treated as specific cultural practices that is, as art not only for chronological reasons. Subversion consists of practices that challenge a dominant political moral order in an emancipatory sense and not only sabotage its stability, but also undermine it in a long-term perspective.
