Arte indígena contemporáneo
Sobre este cursoOmitir Sobre este curso
Faced with the attempt at cultural homogenization imposed on us by the colonial system in which we are immersed, in America, for more than half a century, a tendency has been generated to look with strong interest at indigenous peoples, their customs, cultures, beliefs and practices, in order to trace identities and understand the world through the eyes of “the others.”
The native peoples then began to be thought of as a cultural reference, since they have a firm influence on society in all kinds of artistic expression as well as in their daily life practices in general. However, the conceptions surrounding indigenous art in Latin America have been and are constantly associated with the idea of the pre-Hispanic, creating an erroneous imaginary that their production is only inscribed in that historical moment, and that modern artistic exercises and contemporaries are only representations or reproductions of that “traditional” art.
That is why this course seeks to create a space for reflection from the field of arts, having as a starting point the dialogue between the contemporary and the ancestral, investigating issues as old as current such as identity, resistance, gender. , ritual and the body. All this, through creation and plastic experimentation, as well as the journey through the artistic practices of different guest artists and Julieth Morales, artist and indigenous woman belonging to the Misak indigenous community, author of this course.
Finally, we will learn about one of the ancestral practices that exists in the Misak and Nasa communities: “ Hilar ”, a basic daily exercise in the creation of indigenous clothing. Including ourselves in this practice will allow us to take this exercise to the level of reflection, where we will be able to identify some of the significant practices of indigenous peoples and connect them to the personal experiences of the participants.
