The artistic creation in Latin America is articulated as a geopolitically fragmented body, emancipated and with the sharpened symptom of resistance; an eroded and contracted body. Contemporary photographic production has questioned history, reformulating its own identity by finding a visual language in dialogue with the juncture and the urgent conditions of the region’s situation.
To this purpose, we decided to include projects that deal with their work as an eloquent practice to build divergent and committed narratives in the long term relationships, which are born in the desire, the public space, the autonomy, the encounter, the clash and the differentiation, the classes, the genres, the ethnicities, the cultural defects, the body, the symptom and the elusive drive in the way of seeing and existing.
At a time when collectivity and associativity is being the way to build from the plural the singular, we are interested in proposing a route that from chaos and multiplicity reveals the different surfaces that build the region. Where the constant questioning of the established determines the way in which the image manages to displace the dynamics of power.
Latin American photography is not an ideal, it is an effervescent space of resistance.
