Description

Memories, romance, politics and art are found in these essays of dissidence and love. In the Southern Cone, sexuality is politics, and politics is memory and is a mark, and there is always something to say and write about. This book deals with it. However, as many of the texts included go back to specific policies of repression from within the framework of the nation, local artistic practices and approaches acclimated to particular contexts of activism, the nation is inescapable. It is so that the book is parceled in Chile, Uruguay and Argentina, in an order that is not alphabetical nor by lot, but pendular: left, right,, center; areas, localities, communities. In this uncertain period, a time of growth of nationalisms, of an anti-globalization retreat, in this time of budgetary cuts of the return of conservatism by the political right in Latin America, the authors see themselves in the urgent need to rethink, precisely , which means dissent within democratic designs proposed according to economic models. It is in this convergence of discourses and practices on nation, body, sexuality, race, class, activism and academia that this work is presented. -- translated from publisher's site
