Transatlantic Encounters: Avant-garde Discourses in Spain and Latin America

July 11 – 13, 2013 /
Nouvel Building, Auditorium 200

This international event, which brings together researchers, artists and curators from both sides of the Atlantic, seeks to stimulate reflection about the notion of avant-garde in relation to the experience and discourse of modernity between 1920 and 1970.

The main object of this reflection is the political and aesthetic avant-garde that formed in the context of the first and second Avant-gardes (or Neo-avantgardes), and also the role that the exchanges between Spain and Latin America played in the construction of this notion. Through keynote addresses and communications, the various sessions will present the latest research, thus contributing to a better understanding of the relationships and exchanges between Spain and Latin America (which have been little studied to date), and to a reconsideration of historiography and the dominant discourses of modernism and modernity.
