Program in Latin American Studies

The period of 1960-1985 was a time of great experimentation all over the world, and a period when many of the languages of contemporary art, such as conceptual art, video art, and performance, were shaped. In particular, Latina and Latin American women artists in Radical Women defied canonical ideas of art and normative definitions of the body, specifically of the female body. This talk explores how the political female body is the center of activism and creative, poetic and erotic imagination.
