The present research work arises from a need to understand certain present-day factors that are related to the concepts of border, place, identity, language, emigration and immigration, all concepts that have a central role on the social, political, economic, and cultural spheres, and which, lately, have been more and more debated and explored in the artistic world, through literature, cinema, and visual arts. The purpose here is to understand the importance of the concepts, as well as their inclusion in the art debates and art practices of contemporary art, through a perspective that moves from the particular to the generic, and which is based on an autobiographic experience of deterritorialization identified in the production of works of this researcher.. This research present a reflection about the concepts, based on the perspectives of theoretics and artists who have focused on the subject of the foreigner’s identity, the subject of the border-space, the individual as halfbreed, mestizo, or about the transformations around the designation of culture, a reflection that is punctuated by my own trip experience as foreign-artist.
