“The second conquest” (east Harlem, NYC) is a piece that reflects reality, future and progress. The three characters describe the American reality, their new skin, new protagonists. Based on photos taken by @marthacoopergram in the 90s of immigrants in East Harlem, the past meets the present on the construction of the neighborhood.

 

The red flag is the symbolic representation of the fight of Puerto Rican Young Lords during the 60s to improve the living conditions of Puerto Ricans in East Harlem. They also demanded the evacuation of the island of Vieques occupied by the US Army, but above all, demanded the independence of Puerto Rico.

 

Somebody once said that the “first conquest” was made by Christopher Columbus, but today the reality is different.
