“Resistance Performed: Aesthetic Strategies Under Repressive Systems in Latin America” by Tobi Maier

e-flux

Resistance Performed—Aesthetic Strategies under Repressive Regimes in Latin America

RESISTANCE PERFORMED

An anthology on aesthetic strategies under repressive regimes in Latin America
Publication by JRP -Ringier
The publication addresses performative artistic strategies as a lived practice of resistance in Latin American countries such as Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. At the core of this reflection are historical positions that have borne witness to the way people have resisted repressive and dictatorial political systems in Latin America since the 1960s, often jeopardizing their own lives. The intention is to conduct a fresh exploration of the idea of resistance through a dialogue with contemporary positions. Performative strategies have regained significance in contemporary artistic practice in recent years, raising the question of whether these are still viable strategies to undermine hierarchical structures or even change political systems today?

140 pp | English - Spanish | Softcove | 24 x 17 cm. | Published by Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Santiago, CL | ISBN: 978-956-8890-18-6               Authors: Fernando Castro Flórez, Patricio M. Zárate, Eugenio Dittborn.                                        This first monograph on Nicolás Franco´s work,  is conceived to document his solo exhibition at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes held in 2012. It presents a selection of projects by the Chilean artist: from his early works, focused on sound and light installations, to his most recent, aimed at exploring history trough photography and printed matter. Three essays, each of which covers a relevant aspect of Franco´s oeuvre, carefully contextualize the artworks presented here. Fernando Castro Flórez puts Franco´s practice into an art historical perspective; Patricio M. Zárate delves into the technical procedures in Franco´s works; while Eugenio Dittborn deals with the poetry of Franco´s appropriation strategies.
