Daniel Godínez Nivón is a Mexican visual artist whose practice is linked to processes of social participation related to collective knowledge and education. Nivón has been developing his work in context-specific scenarios, such as indigenous migrant associations and academic institutions. He studied at the Multiple Media Seminar at the Faculty of Arts and Design of the UNAM in Mexico, then undertook a post academic residency at the Jan van Eyck Academie in The Netherlands. One of the fundamental tools of his practice is tequio, a traditional system of work which consists of a communal, collaborative and compulsory work system. Recently Daniel has been working alongside triqui midwives and families from San Juan Copala, Oaxaca living in Mexico City, women who use dreams as a learning and healing tool. With the use of tequio and dreaming assemblies, they are deepening their understanding of the environmental destruction to imagine possible futures to confront climate collapse. In 2022, Nivón was selected to represent Mexico in the 23rd International Exhibition of the Milano Triennale and won the 2nd best Pavilion.
