Art & Memory in Latin America

Art and Memory in Latin America: The Argentine Case
In this course we will study Latin American art and its relationship to military dictatorships of the ’70s and ‘80s. The term memory—as a necessary subject and as an objective for many of the subsequent artistic practices—will be the main conceptual point to be developed throughout the course. We will work with texts, audio visual materials, and creative exercises of artistic production. We will pay special attention to Argentina, focusing on the Proceso de Reorganización Nacional (1976-1983) and its effects on contemporary art productions and on the cultural institutions of this country.
