ANDREA GIUNTA: THE MASS, THE POET AND THE BOURGEOIS
Andrea Giunta will address the difference between mass and people taking as a departure point some of the ways in which these subjects have been represented in images, particularly in modern and contemporary art in Latin America. She will also consider, as a specific problem, the observation and descriptions that poets and bourgeois have made of those choreographies of bodies and of the emotions that blend into the mass, from the points of view of the filmographies of Glauber Rocha, included in the exhibition Memories of Underdevelopment, and of Tomás Gutiérrez Alea.
Andrea Giunta is an art historian and curator. She received her Ph.D. from the Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she is Professor of Latin American and International Contemporary Art. She is also Principal Researcher of the CONICET, National Research Council, Argentina. Recent books include Feminismo y arte latinoamericano.
