Abstract (English)

Mosquera offers his selection of 22 essays as an introduction to the ongoing critical debates within and without Latin America about Latin American art. The selections, Mosquera notes, are characteristic of newer theories since the 1980s, representing a shift away from the key concepts of the criticism of the 1960s, such as “resistance” and “revolution,” towards those like “hybridisation” and “appropriation” which share features with North American-style multiculturalism and mass culture. Brief biographical notes on the authors. Glossary, 2 p. Circa 290 bibl. ref.
