Lunch meeting - Karime Aragón, Ph.D.

CONTENEDOR-ES DE ARTE

Introduction to a Mexican Indigenous – cross cultural art project

Oaxaca is a South-Eastern Mexican State with the biggest ethno-linguistic diversity in the country. The diversity is represented in a wide and rich artistic tradition such as the handcrafts, which include wooden carving, waist loom weaving, rug, pottery, cutlery, among others.

This aspect from Mexican folk culture motivated the idea-project: Contenedor-es de Arte, or “Art Container” in English. The project includes Tribus Mixes, a Cooperative of Indigenous carves (the traditional carved-painting wood sculptures called alebrijes) from Ayutla Mixes, Sierra Norte of Oaxaca.

Contenedor-es de Arte is a wandering exhibition of huge wooden sculptures that can be put together in different ways thereby creating an ever-changing art installation. Being born (assembled) in the morning that are dying (packed down) in the evening just to be reborn next morning in a new and alternative creation.

Seven containers with each their traditional fable animal relating to the artisans’ ethnolinguistic background, and the last container to hold an interactive workshop and information office. An exhibition that comes with its own containers, that will become an integrated part of the art work, and so it can be shipped to culture festivals in any corner of the world, where urban/local artists would also interact in the exhibition, i.e. graphite.

This big revolving art installation seeks to recognize, strength and promote Mexican folk culture, and to give a new picture of Oaxaca by presenting the artistic rich diversity of the state.

Place and time: Building 1484-200 at 12-13:30    

Lunch meeting - Hendrikje (Rike) Grunow, a Ph.D. student in Cultural Studies at the University of Konstanz

Hendrikje (Rike) Grunow, a Ph.D. student in Cultural Studies at the University of Konstanz (southern Germany): "Dolor de patria. On the Historicity of Affect in Bogota’s Upper Middle Class" 

Hendrikje Grunow has a background in Anthropology and Interdisciplinary Latin American Studies. In her ongoing Ph.D. project titled "Affected by Conflict. Affective Traces of the Past in Everyday Life among Bogota’s Upper Middle Class", she examines experiences and interpretations of violent conflict in Colombia. More specifically, she analyzes ways in which members of the upper middle class are affected by the country’s ongoing conflict and how this serves them as both emotional and habitual mechanism of distinction.

At the meeting, we are going discuss a chapter from the project. To request your copy, contact Georg Fischer (fischer@cas.au.dk).

LACUA conference 2019

Esperanza/esperança/hope - Searching for hope in Latin America and Europe

At this conference we trace the politics of hope interconnecting both Latin America and Europe. Although far from being a homogeneous region, during recent years many parts of Latin America have seen the dismantling of democracy, backslides into violence, environmental devastation, crises of capitalism and petro-socialism - in short, politics of hopelessness. The region is enmeshed in a global context of rising nationalism, authoritarianism and incipient climate disaster. Yet, at the same time, movements and networks at civil society and grassroots level construct projects and imagine scenarios that bear, beyond outrage and protest, hope. Many of these social movements are transnational and very inspiring for European societies. Taking inspiration from notions such as "radical hope" (Jonathan Lear), "networks of hope" (Manuel Castells), "slow hope" (Christof Mauch), and “remembering hope” (Ann Rigney), we address hope not in search of definite solutions, but rather as an attempt to examine the practices and subjectivities - past and present - that sustain the anticipation of "a future goodness that transcends the current ability to understand what it is" (J. Lear).

Possible themes include:

  • The semantics of hope - How do people use the word esperanza / esperança?

  • Urban utopias - how do grassroots organizations imagine and practice the city of the future?

  • Up from violence - what futures result from peace and truth processes, how is "pacification" dreamt from below?

  • Post-extractivism/post-apocalypsis - what are the Latin American landscapes and ecologies of hope?

  • Lyrics, visuals and performances of hope - how is the good life anticipated culturally?

Guest lecture: Extractivism and Human Rights in Latin America.
