Figura del Quijote con Sancho Pansa

Art from Latin America (And Other Global Pulses)

Reading Session

In this session we will discuss with Gerardo Mosquera questions around the definition of Latin American art and the Latin American identity. In his essays, Mosquera revisits these categories and reflects on how Latin American art has been included in the global art circuits, and warns us about the dangers of using fixed categories that might lead to a self-exoticism.

En esta sesión conversaremos con Gerardo Mosquera algunos temas relacionados con la definición de arte latinoamericano y la identidad latinoamericana. En sus ensayos, Mosquera revisa estas categorías y reflexiona sobre cómo el arte latinoamericano ha sido incluido en los circuitos artísticos globales, y nos advierte sobre el peligro del uso de categorías fijas, que podrían llevar a un auto-exotismo.

The symposium on conceptual art from Latin America "Rethinking Conceptualism: Avant-Garde, Activism and Politics in Latin American Art (1960s-1980s)" has been postponed and will take place from 25 to 26 March 2021 at Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut.

Before this meeting, Katerina Valdivia Bruch, artistic director and curator of the project, has started an online programme with workshops and monthly reading sessions.
