1After320 Film Program: ‘A Thousand Visions: Contemporary Video from Latin America’

Oct-Dec
Latin America: David Ayala Alfonso

Defining Latin America beyond its geography and through the lens of culture is a challenge. The attempt to cast the denomination of a region have been recurrent for centuries, and has been closely related to independent processes and narratives. The idea of a Latin America lives in different versions that respond to an equivalent number of ends. There is a Latin America that lives in the political discourse of power that is in tension with other versions of the concept, particularly those in the context of cultural expression be it cinema, visual arts or music. Artists have thus developed discourses that call on an approach in presenting an idea of Latin America that is empathetic to what takes place within communities through nodes and networks of global exchange. Works in the selection potray a complex articulation of identities, filiations and oppositions that produce audio-visual discourse in the different countries of the region. Personal stories mingle with international connections and hybridizations, cultural contingencies and political utterances in depictions of contemporary Latin America.

Artists include: Felipe Steinberg, Carlos Motta, Laura Huertas Millan, Regina Parra, Claudia Joskowicz, Amanda Gutierrez, Carlos Guzman and Ana Tomimori.

En el caso de {{em_01: estado del arte (del arte), no se trata de una simple mirada de actualidad, sino una visión crítica sobre el lugar que es otorgado a la práctica y la función social del arte dentro de nuestra sociedad, a partir de ejes problemáticos como fenómeno, acontecimiento, recepción/traducción y academia.

{{em_gencia} se plantea  desde una resignificación tanto histórica como política, que involucra el acaecer como una actitud cambiante, apropiada en nuestro tiempo y espacio.
