The H Committee of Human Vindication 

The H Committee of Human Vindication (in Spanish H Comite de Reivindicacion Humana), better known by its initials HCRH, is a Mexican art collective founded by Rodrigo Azaola, Artemio Narro and Octavio Serra that operated as a phantom and universal pseudo-organization, supposedly founded in 1947. The HCRH created numerous conferences, texts, actions, editorial projects, music, radio programs and artworks that utilize a highly ironic and intellectual language for "ridiculing the hollow pomposity of institutional culture." The public art activities of the HCRH, in festivals for example, were produced between 1996 and 2004, a period in which globalization and neoliberal politics in Mexico were incipient and the market-driven art world was consolidated

The book HCRH: Septuagésimo Aniversario 1947-2017 was published by Alumnos47 Foundation and was edited as a fiction/artists’ book and archive of their work.
