Breaking Tezcatlipoca.

Breaking Tezcatlipoca explores storytelling as a phenomenon in and of itself. As a graphic ethnography of Mexican family stories, this comic book is an overview of a family mythos about (great-)grandparents and the multiple ways in which family members conceptualise memory and perceive reality through family storytelling. Working within the realms of auto-ethnography, comics theory and the recent so-called “graphic narrative turn” in Anthropology, this project attempts to bring together a partial view of multiple perspectives in order to render visible the ambivalent and uncertain realities of Mexican family myths.
