El Honorable Cartel was born as a collective focused on the creation and printing of posters that, through interventions in the public space, proposes the existence of a presumed clandestine organization that controls the truth. He carries out interventions in the public space using serigraphs, in a sort of juxtaposition and hacking of signs and identities. In the same way, the collective not only uses screen printing as a means to carry out an intervention proposal, this if necessary, can dispense with the printed poster while continuing to appropriate and subvert the modus operandi of a cartel. It was part of the autonomous space La Redada Miscelnea Cultural and manager of the El Primitivo screen printing workshop (Bogotá 2011 - 2013), Among the interventions and projects that it has carried out are: Intervention in the IV National Congress of Philosophy with the presentation / performance “Impostores” (Manizales 2012); Poster creation and printing workshop within the framework of the Medios del cuerpo laboratory, held in El Parqueadero of the Banco de la República Museum (Bogotá 2011); Participation with the project "Satander" in "La Lunada, Museo de la Bagatela", curated by the Venezuelan Susana Quintero, among others.
