Giulia Murace — Human, Natural, and Urban Landscapes of Rome at the Turn of the Twentieth Century in the Paintings of Rioplatense Artists

Between the late 19th and the early 20th century, many Argentine and Uruguayan artists travelled to, and settled in, Rome. There, they formed a network of strong relationships creating a Rioplatense colony that constituted an integration strategy of these peripheral artists with the rest of the Italian and international artistic community.

Verena Kittel — Chronopolitics of Modernity: The Constitution of Non-Temporalities in Anni Albers’ and Lina Bo Bardi’s Collections of Vernacular Objects and Ancient Artifacts from Brazil and Mexico

The engagement with non-European cultures was crucial to many Western artist circles of the 1920s, such as the Weaving Workshop at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau. In her paper, Verena Kittel aims at revealing the conflictuality of such practices at art educational institutions that were inspired by core principles of the German art school, reflected in the narratives, images of history, and forms of heritage created in the process.

Hannah K. Grimmer — Artistic Practices as Alternative Memory Spaces in Social Movements in Santiago de Chile

With the socialist government of Salvador Allende (1970–73) and the civil-military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet (1973–90), Chile is a country whose recent past has been heavily contested, particularly during the transition to democracy. A homogenisation shaped the country’s memory discourse based on unification and victimization (Richard 2001), whereas coming to terms with the past and a profound transformation of the social system never took place.

Mya Dosch — Dissident Temporalities: Afterlives of 1968 in Mexican Public Space

References to “collective memory” have proliferated in recent scholarship on art and state violence in Latin America. This theorization fails to address the dynamic renegotiation of contentious pasts. Instead, the book project Dissident Temporalities: Afterlives of 1968 in Mexican Public Space proposes a theory of “afterlives.”

Ana Paula Salvat — The City as a Palimpsest and the Layers of Time: The Monoliths as Antiquities and the Political uses of Mexica Artifacts

Mexico City’s power center was installed over the previous Mexico-Tenochtitlan city by the beginning of the 16th century. On the one hand, the Spaniards preserved the urban design and the placement of power buildings, but, on the other hand, most of the Mexica art, architecture, and documentation were destroyed for ideological and religious reasons.

By Natasha Klimenko. On April 13th, 2022, I spoke to Sasha Kurmaz, an artist from Kyiv who now lives in Ivano-Frankivsk, a city in western Ukraine. When we started the interview, he told me to keep one thing in mind: “If the air raid siren goes off, I’ll have to close everything and go”.
