Publisher Note

This publication addresses performative artistic strategies as a lived practice of resistance in Latin American countries such as Argentina, Brazil and Chile, from the 1960s on. At its core are those artists who have contested repressive political systems, often jeopardizing their own lives: for example, 3Nós3, Elías Adasme, Sonia Andrade, Martha Araújo, Lenora de Barros, Paulo Bruscky, Colectivo Acciones de Arte, Luis Camnitzer, Graciela Carnevale, Antonio Caro, Antonio Dias, Eugenio Dittborn, León Ferrari, Nicolás Franco, Anna Bella Geiger, Grupo de Arte Callejero, Graciela Gutiérrez Marx, Voluspa Jarpa, Gastão de Magalhães, Anna Maria Maiolino, Antonio Manuel, Cildo Meireles, Pedro Reyes, Lotty Rosenfeld, Yeguas del Apocalipsis, Horacio Zabala and Sergio Zevallos. Essays discuss topics such as gender issues, Chile’s dictatorship and mail art.
