Exclusion, Memory and Oblivion: Political Artistic Interventions in Public Space

Coordinator: Ana Torres

Open call from December 1, 2016 to February 28,  2017


Globalization has brought about profound changes in the processes of regional identity; in Latin American countries we face problems of exclusion, inequality and violence, and above all the imposition of a hegemonic culture. In this sense, we consider it necessary to open spaces for reflection on how public artistic practices can generate democratic cultural projects, considering the construction of collective memories and identities. Gilda Waldman suggests in this respect that we need a commitment to memory and a firm opposition to the policies of oblivion that lead global societies to a modernization sustained not only by the free market but by a culture of spectacle and the ephemeral.

This issue of Nierika. Revista de Estudios de Arte will focus on the study of public and critical artistic practices to reflect on the concept of the political" and the various ways these practices can contribute to the construction of new “collective subjectivities”. It also aims to reconstruct cases of artistic activism, and social and political events that have been forgotten or censored by official memory.

Public space has become a multipolar space that urgently requires analysis that can lead to the proposal of new paradigms for the construction of democratic futures. Public artistic expressions form multiple symbolic frameworks in which the world of artistic representation and the events of daily life converge.

The issue will focus on the sense of resistance and transgression in art, the role that artists, curators and art scholars can play in the subversion of dominant hegemony, and how critical art contrasts with hegemonic discourse. We are interested in studying public artistic practices, their relation with the system and the institution, artistic activism that takes into account denunciation and protest, and alternative possibilities for the relationship between artists and the art system.
