A digital inventory of Mexico’s cultural heritage in Spain, compiled by Paris-based journalist and researcher Miguel Gleason, debuts this month, just in time for the bicentennial of Mexico’s independence from Spain as well as the centennial of the Mexican Revolution.
The DVD-ROM, titled “México en España”, is three years in the making and includes 2,000 artifacts discovered in hundreds of museums, churches and private collections. For this exhaustive project, Gleason visited 195 towns and cities. It will be presented on 9 September at the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Mexico City and at the Instituto de México in Madrid on 14 September.
